Ozark is a great City comprised of many very successful and memorable people. One such person is football legend, Wilbur Jackson. Mr. Jackson grew up in Ozark and started his athletic career playing football for Carroll High School. He went on to be the first African American player offered a football scholarship at the University of Alabama. After playing for several years under Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant, he was a first round NFL draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers. Mr. Jackson went on to play five seasons with San Francisco and three with Washington where he helped the team win Super Bowl XVII. After a successful football career, he retired and returned to his hometown of Ozark where he started and ran a successful cleaning business for many years.
For some time we have been working on a project to honor Ozark legends like Mr. Jackson. Below you will find an artist rendering of a 26’ x 86’ mural that will be painted on the side of a building in downtown Ozark. Such a beautiful piece of artwork comes at a large price and this is where we need your help! With your generous donation to the Ozark Community Mural Program, the Wilbur Jackson mural will be the first in a series of murals to be prominently displayed on downtown businesses. These epic murals will celebrate the people, places, and stories of Ozark while aiding in downtown revitalization. We anticipate families, tourists, and groups will come to see these beautiful murals and enjoy shopping, dining, and visiting our city while they are here. All this, thanks to the goodwill and support of generous people like yourself.
