Jennifer Lyn Jackson (March 21, 1969 – January 22, 2010)[3][1] of Cleveland, Ohio, was the Playboy magazine Playmate of the Month for April 1989. Jackson was also one of three finalists chosen for Playboy's 35th Anniversary Playmate. Outtakes from her Playmate pictorial, which was photographed by Arny Freytag,[3] appeared in Playboy Special Editions several times following her centerfold appearance.

Jackson graduated from North Olmsted High School in 1986, and she went on to study business and finance at Kent State University.[4]

In January 2007, Jackson was arrested in Oberlin, Ohio, for driving under the influence (DUI), and police found open beer bottles, marijuana, and stolen tobacco products in her car. In a plea bargain, she pleaded guilty to DUI and the other criminal charges were dropped. She was given a suspended sentence of 180 days in jail, fined $500, placed on probation for three years, and had her driver's license suspended for six months. She was also ordered to receive a period of drug and alcohol abuse counseling.

On January 22, 2010, Jackson was found dead in bed by her husband, James Thompson, in their home in a trailer park in Westlake, Ohio, of a heroin overdose.[2][1]
