TENNESSEE (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Tennessee man is waking up a lot richer this morning.

Roy Cockrum claimed what officials are calling the largest jackpot ever won in Tennessee, with a winning $259-million Powerball ticket.

58-year-old Cockrum worked as an actor and stage manager for a theater for 20 years before his big win.

He plans to accept a lump sum payment of $115-million and use a major portion to start a foundation that will support performing arts.
