With so many senseless acts of violence that have occurred recently, some schools and businesses are taking stronger measures to ensure safety for students and employees.

Colorado State University did just that, by releasing a warning to students and faculty on Thursday, notifying recipients of a concerning person that is no longer allowed on campus. According to CSUPD, Joshua “Yeshua” Jackson, who was enrolled as a student prior to this incident, has now been excluded from campus due to threatening behavior and generalized threats of violence regarding schools and our community. This means that he is not legally allowed on campus and must stay away from all university-owned property. This decision stems from threatening behavior and generalized threats of violence regarding schools and our community that Jackson publicly made. He has recently been charged in connection with these threats, verbally accosting individuals earlier this week, a bias-motivated crime, and engaging in physical violence while in police custody.

Jackson is 24 years old and is described 6’1”, 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. If you see him on campus or approaching campus, or near University Village (university-owned housing in the Campus West area), call or text 911 immediately or call CSUPD’s non-emergency number at (970) 491-6425.
