Jackson was born in the Boston area and has lived just outside of the city his whole life. From a young age, Jackson has always had a passion for drawing and art, including graphite drawings, painting murals and painting custom sneakers. Being inspired by architecture and design for most of his life, Jackson went into studying interior architecture and design at Suffolk University, and plans on doing a masters in architecture after graduating from Suffolk.
In high school, Jackson worked at a restaurant at a retirement community. It was here where he learned first hand the obstacles elderly people with disabilities face, including his aunt, who is unable to walk on her own. Working here inspired Jackson to want to help the elderly people who he worked with, and learn more about how we can all help those with disabilities.
