Jackson or Jacko is a rare sight these days-or any days, for that matter. The kid is fourteen and can truly shred anything. Don’t be surprised to see him flying down stairs or hauling ass through a ditch, maybe even skating vert or shredding a bowl like there’s no tomorrow. Chris Senn was well impressed with him, so that’s enough said there. Keep it going Jacko. Big things, homey.-Jake brown

Jackson is the kind of kid you don’t know what to expect when you first meet him. After a few days on different terrain, I realized the kid just likes to rip anything that’s in front of him and doesn’t
complain about spots. Huge fullpipes, sketchy ditches at a sewage
plant-whatever. He’s just happy to be rolling around the world at his age skateboarding.-Chad Bartie
