1 Timothy 6:11
Since Jackson was young, he has had a passion for media. Beginning with playing on the family computer and making YouTube videos of him solving Rubik's Cubes, his love for all aspects of technology was evident. When he was 13, he began volunteering in his church's production department running the light board. By 17, he had worked his way up to a staff position as the Director of Media Ministries at the church. Jackson worked there for just over a year before graduating from Maryville High School and leaving for Middle Tennessee State University to pursue a degree in Interactive Media in 2020.
After his first semester, he was inspired to start his own digital marketing business. On January 1, 2021, he did just that, officially founding Pursuit Digital LLC at 18 years old. Since then, he has worked with dozens of clients to provide them with digital services to grow their brands in addition to earning a bachelor's degree in Interactive Media. His story has been featured in national publications such as USA Today in addition to local papers such as The Daily Times.
Outside of Pursuit Digital, Jackson is married to the love of his life, Samantha. The two reside in Farrgut, Tennessee, just outside of Knoxville. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing or watching basketball, and hanging out at the lake.
