Jackson was first elected in the 2008 historic general election of President Barak Obama, following a teaching career with the WISD.
When ask why she was seeking reelection, Jackson stated that she enjoyed helping the citizens and improving the quality of life of the community.
Since her election, Jackson is credited with improving the relationships with the office and the citizens by making the services relevant to their lives. Some of her accomplishments to date include working cooperatively with county officials to enhance the services and operations of Precinct 3 for the all citizens; instrumental in establishing the Gavel Series at Prairie View A&M University – a free legal based education to the county; partnered with other law enforcement units to have campus citations sent to the city of Prairie View’s Municipal Court to accommodate the students; provided internship opportunities for the students at Prairie View A&M to share and learn the justice process and becoming a charter member of WALC (Waller County Alliance for Life Style Changes).
In addition to the judicial services, Jackson is involved in several community service initiatives including charter member & Cub Master for Pack 338 and Troop 1906 (Boy Scouts of America);Board Member & Public Relations Officer for the Prairie View Volunteer Fire Fighting Association, Inc.; Chairperson for the association’s Annual Community Fire and Safety Smoke Detector Check, Red & White Ball, Back to School supply drive; the Thanksgiving Community Luncheon and the Christmas Toy & Food Drive. She is the former President and member of H. T. Jones Elementary PTO and the PAW’s (Panthers at Work) Supervisor for the City of Prairie View and the Prairie View A&M University’s annual cleanup.
“Jackson is one of the hardest working county officials and has developed a following for diligence and commitment to position and the community,” says Frederick Roberts of Prairie View Today. Jackson plans to continue connecting with the citizens and the students through creating other avenues to improve the services and educational programs.
Not one to seek recognition for her community services, Jackson has received numerous awards, citations and recognition from local, state and national organizations, including the 2013 Humanitarian Award from Prairie View A&M University and Boy Scouts of America Sam Houston Council honors.
