Jackson White couldn't wait to meet his parents, Meredith and Ian "Milky" when he came into the world three weeks early.

The beautiful boy with a cheeky smile and mop of curly blond hair was affectionately called Bugaboo, Squirt, Monkey butt and Bucket head - but the 4-year-old just wanted to be known as "Jackson Bruce".

Tragically, Jackson was killed at the Lincoln Grain and Produce work site, south of Prebbleton in the Selwyn District on September 30.
