For the first time in intercollegiate athletic history, a private charitable and tax-exempt organization has been created with the specific mission of offering temporary financial assistance to qualifying former Longhorn athletes, coaches, student managers, trainers, and their immediate  families.  

The goal of TLSN is to have funds available for grants (in the form of qualifying expense reimbursements) to qualifying applicants without having to seek contributions from donors every time assistance is needed.  This is not the present situation due to the fact that TLSN is a start-up charity. 

Both the Board of Directors of TLSN and the U.T. Compliance Department have approved Jackie’s request for financial assistance.

UPDATE-  2/24/2018  - General fund donations received are sufficient to assist  Jackie thru at least April of 2018. TLSN goal is to assist her thru the end of June 2018. There is a “donate” link in the upper right portion of the page.  Simply click on the link and follow the instructions to complete the donation process. Any donation amount is appreciated.   If you prefer to contribute by check, please make the check payable to TLSN and send it to TLSN, 7703 Mesa Drive, Austin, TX. 78731

Jackie Campbell Quispe is the type of former student athlete that TLSN seeks to help consistent with TLSN’s charitable purposes. Jackie is a former volleyball player from the mid-80’s and is the sole source of financial support for her family which include three children in college and four still at home, including her eleven-year-old son, Yanaq.  On November 17, 2017, Yanaq, was diagnosed with leukemia.   As a result, Jackie has only been working sporadically.    Yanaq’s treatments will continue bi-weekly through June of this year with a possible bone marrow transplant pending.  While Jackie has health insurance, the situation with Yanaq has placed tremendous pressure on her financially.   Jackie has told us that she is likely going to have to sell her home because of the situation.
