His hard work on and off the court has earned Jackson the honor of being named a PNC Student Achiever for fall 2019 at the University of Akron.

The program honors two students each semester who have excelled in a variety of ways in their college careers.
"It's great to be recognized for such a prestigious award," Jackson said. "I never thought I'd be one of the students chosen as a PNC Student Achiever."
The award is well deserved.
As a graduating senior majoring in business administration, with a minor in entrepreneurship, he is an Academic All-MAC selection and is a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success. And he's not stopping there.
Jackson will begin pursuing his graduate degree at the University of Akron in the spring, focusing on sports management and coaching. The continuing tie to sports is intentional.
Jackson's father owns Victory Rock Prep, a basketball preparatory school in Bradenton, Fla., that aims to help players excel in the game. Jackson is expected to take over the business – and he has big plans.
"I would like to expand the business to other states, and maybe even another country," Jackson said.
