Jackson is a former “PJ” or Pararescue man. He received his training through the US Army’s, John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center, Joint Special Operations Medical Training Center (JSOMTC), Fort Bragg, NC, in 1998 where he was also certified as a Nationally Registered EMT-Paramedic. He continued his medical foundation at the USAF’s Pararescue School at Kirtland AFB, NM. Holding a certification of a NREMT-Paramedic along with his advanced military medicine skills, Jackson was deployed over a dozen times to Iraq, Afghanistan, South America and other locations with other Special Operations Units where he was able to utilize his skills on real world missions.
Since his separation from the military, Jackson has continued to teach, train and evaluate thousands of military combat medics (Rangers, SF, PJs, SEALS, Corpsman), civilian medics, firefighters, law enforcement personnel, foreign nationals and US military units conducting deployment workups. He has taught crucial aspects of Personnel Recovery, Active Shooter, Downed Officer Rescue, Tactical Combat Casualty Care, Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (civilian version of TCCC) and managing a Casualty Collection Point (CCP). Although he enjoys much of the technical aspects of medicine and care under fire, he is a huge fan of keeping things simple and developing mindset.
