The NBRPA Mourns the Loss of Jackson Vroman

June 30, 2015

The NBRPA extends condolences to the family, friends, and former teammates of former NBA player Jackson Vroman, who passed away at the age of 34.

Son of former NBA player Brett Vroman, Jackson was the first Iowa State player to lead the Big 12 in rebounding in 24 years. After spending two seasons with the Cyclones, Vroman was a second-round draft pick of the Chicago Bulls in 2004, later playing for both the Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Hornets.

Following his NBA career, Vroman played basketball abroad in several countries, including Spain, the Philippines, and the territory of Puerto Rico. While playing in the Iranian Basketball Super League for the Mahram Tehran Basketball Club, who won numerous championships in 2009-2010, Vroman was awarded the 2009 Most Valuable Player honor as part of the Asian Championship.
