Graduation will be bittersweet this year for a senior at St. Edward’s High School.

Though Jackson Seo, Jr. will be going on to college and even has some scholarship money, his parents will be unable to make the special day.

“What I keep telling my son is, ‘Hey, God is the best. At least you have a graduation. Some kids do not even have a graduation,’” Jackson Seo, Sr. said.

Seo, his wife, and their son fled Liberia, West Africa 17 years ago after war claimed their loved ones.

They eventually landed in Cleveland, where they bought a home and had a daughter.

Jackson, Sr. worked as a payroll administrator for non-profits serving the disabled, while Jackson, Jr. became an honors student and played soccer at St. Ed’s.

But then things took a turn.
