Henry D. Jackson (born December 16, 1964) is a American businessman, who is Managing Partner and Chief Executive of OpCapita LLP, a London based private investment firm. He is married to singer Stacey Jackson and has four children with her. Jackson founded OpCapita's predecessor, Merchant Equity Partners, in early 2006 alongside operating partners David Hamid and John von Spreckelsen. [1] The name was changed to OpCapita in 2010, and in 2011 it completed its first deal under that name.[2]

Before setting up MEP, he was a Managing Director of Deutsche Bank AG and head of its European Consumer and Retail Group. Prior to this he held partner-level positions at Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB), Peter J. Solomon Company, and Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette (DLJ).[3]

In 1995, Henry was named as one of Crain's New York's 40 Under 40.[4] Jackson is the grandson of Henry L. Jackson, a co-founder of Esquire Magazine who died in the crash of United Airlines flight 624 in 1948.[5][6]
