Jadon’s mother, Courtney Haselwood’s other name is Courtney Cousar. The young footballer holds his mother very dear and has said that one of the major factors that have kept him glued to Georgia is his mother, another reason being his coach Kirby Smart.

Courtney underwent surgery to correct a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2019, causing her to miss some of her son’s games during his time at the Sooners.

Oddly enough, Jadon suffered the same injury during an off-season workout a year later.

Much of Jadon’s family is in Georgia, but his father grew up in Oklahoma City. Hence, he also has many relatives in Oklahoma, including one set of grandparents and cousins, and aunts from his father’s side of the family.
