Teaming Up For Our Greatest Fans

Barret Jackman is a former NHL defenseman for the St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators.   A first round selection (17th overall) by the Blues in 1999, Jackman enjoyed great success in his twelve years with St Louis.  The franchise’s only Calder Trophy (Rookie of the Year) winner in 2003 and franchise leader in games played by a defenseman, Barret epitomizes what it means to be a loyal warrior.  Barret and his wife, Jenny are proud parents of Cayden and McKenna and their three rescued dogs, Tanner, Skelly and Thunder complete their home.  The Jackmans are heavily involved with Stray Rescue, a great no-kill shelter in St Louis.  In their work with Stray Rescue, Jenny sits on the board of directors and spends time volunteering on rescues that save dogs from deplorable conditions.  Barret is willing to speak out to help companion animals find forever homes and get the treatment they deserve.  The Jackmans are mainstays at Stray Rescue events, helping them raise money and awareness with their presence.  A great example for our other Athlete Ambassadors to follow, Barret says, “Mistreating or abusing an animal is crime that we need to eliminate.  Through our work with Stray Rescue, we have seen how resilient these animals can be and with this organization we can provide them a brighter future.”
