Jackie Jackson '09 & '12

Associate Vice President, University Advancement

Jackie Jackson 2022Growing up in the nearby town Leeton, Jackson knew she wanted to attend UCM at an early age. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration in 2009 and a Master of Science in College Student Personnel Administration in 2012. She is currently working to earn a Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership in Higher Education at Abilene Christian Univeristy, conducting research on the giving motivations of alumni that earned their degrees online.

Jackson began at the UCM Alumni Foundation as director of annual giving in April 2018, after serving in similar roles at two other institutions. In 2020 she took on the role of Associate Vice President of University Advancement. 

She says, "I couldn't think of a better opportunity than to come back to my alma mater and work with alumni to secure much-needed support for current students. The kind of education that UCM offers prepared me for a fulfilling career and continues to do the same for students. I feel lucky to be a part of it now."

Jackson is married to Aaron, and they have a young daughter who plans to be a future Mule.
