Jackson is crazy about swimming, both for his school team, the Liberty Lancers, as well as his club team, the Rocky Mountain Rapids. His favorite event to swim is the 50 freestyle, but he also swims the 200 individual medley relay, 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay. He is hoping to qualify for state this year, as he just barely missed qualifying last season.
Music is also a passion of Jacksons, and he enjoys playing the Alto Sax in the Liberty concert Band. When he wants some downtime, Jackson can be found reading books – particularly fiction.
Last year Jackson went on a European vacation where he visited England, Scotland and the French Riviera. Scotland was his favorite, and it is also his homeland.
In 2013 Colorado Springs fell victim to the Black Forest fire which burned 14,280 acres and destroyed 509 homes. In an effort to help with the forest recovery, Jackson planted trees in the Black Forest. He also volunteers at a military children’s Christmas party.
After graduating from Liberty next spring, Jackson hopes to go to college and eventually become a pilot in the Canadian Air Force.
