After retiring for two years, Jackson had his eye caught by the Marion Mayhem. The Mayhem played in the newly formed, Continental Indoor Football League, which was looking to become a promising league, with its steady expansion. Citing that he missed the game after sitting out, Jackson tried out and made the Mayhem squad. He was also part owner in the low budget league. He went on to have 3 successful seasons with the Mayhem, guiding them to 6-6, 7-5, and 9-3 records. He owns two CIFL records, passing completions in a season (177) and passing attempts in a season (348).
Jackson is currently the color analyst for the Ohio State Buckeyes pre-game and post-game radio show on WTVN in Columbus, Ohio. He is married to Ronita "Myricks" Jackson and currently has 4 children (Stanley Jackson Jr., Ronald Jackson, and Tre' Major Jackson, Jazmine Jackson), and currently lives in Marion, Ohio. Jackson has also been appointed by Ohio Governor John Kasich to the Ohio State Board of Education, an action which has created some controversy in Ohio among some educators who have voiced doubt that Jackson has the appropriate credentials for the position.
