After retiring for two years, Jackson played for the Marion Mayhem of the newly formed, Continental Indoor Football League. 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 is married to Ronita "Myricks" Jackson, has 4 children and currently lives in Westerville, Ohio.
