Jackson started his bass drumming career with Farmington United Percussion Ensemble, and played bass there for two years (2010 and 2011). After graduating high school he played bass two at Eastside Fury for three years (2012-2014), and for two years at Redline (2015 and 2016). He also spent a summer playing bass three at the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps (2012), as well as bass two at the Madison Scouts (2013 and 2015).

Since aging out he's taught bass drum at several ensembles around Southeast Michigan, including Southgate Anderson, Novi, and Plymouth-Canton. He was also a bass tech with Shadow Drum and Bugle Corps in 2018.

This fall Jackson is continuing a two-year master's program at the University of Michigan studying User Experience Design.
