He was also a member of other organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, National Honors Society, Apologetics Club, and PALS, an organization dedicated to making friends with students with disabilities. Jackson performed in many prestigious venues during his high school career including the Music for All conference in Indianapolis, IN, and Carnegie Hall in New York City, NY. Jackson successfully graduated from Oak Mountain High School with Advanced Academic Endorsement in May of 2017.

Currently, Jackson spends his free time teaching private trombone/field conducting lessons and exploring music education through the lens of global missions. He is in the process of attaining his Bachelors of Instrumental Music Education from Samford University, where he plans on graduating in May of 2021. At Samford, Jackson is beginning to explore the bridge between music education and global missions through the help of Samford’s music faculty and the Global Missions Scholarship Program. After graduating, Jackson hopes to begin his career as a music educator in the United States and eventually transition into full-time global missions and spread the name of Jesus Christ through music.
