College and Amateur
Jackson graduated from Arthur P. Schalick High School, and played college soccer at Lehigh University from 1996 to 1999. He holds the single game, season and career assists records at the school.
Jackson was selected in the 6th round (68th overall) of the 2000 MLS SuperDraft by Chicago Fire, and was drafted by the Hershey Wildcats of the USL A-League in the Territorial Round of the 2000 USL Draft. After Chicago waived his contract rights, Jackson signed with the Wildcats and spent the 2000 and 2001 season with the team. In 2002, he played for the South Jersey Barons, and in 2003 he moved to the Charleston Battery, playing for the team through the 2005 season.
Jackson left the Battery at the end of 2005 to work as a youth soccer coach at Daniel Island Soccer Academy, but returned to play for the Battery in 2010; he played his first competitive game in over five years on April 17, 2010, in Charleston's 2010 season opener against the Charlotte Eagles.
