We all have big dreams, the difference is that some wake up and take action towards achieving them.

Mr. Jackson has a true passion for our youth and he tirelessly works hard to find opportunities to educate, empower and motivate young people through his own example. He has proven to be a consummate professional who serves as an excellent role model to youth and young adults looking to achieve success in their professional careers. He is truly someone that we can count on without hesitation.
Dr. Cameron FordDEAN / UCF Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Our entrepreneurship center hosted over 10 distinguished speakers this year. Jackson’s talk generated the most enthusiastic response from our students. His presentation was spellbinding. If you are looking for someone to describe the nonlinear and sometimes unexpected paths towards entrepreneurial success, and inspire others to consider following his example, I strongly recommend J. Jackson.

In addition to all that RYSE Magazine is doing to promote entrepreneurship and professionalism, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Jay and his team for their philanthropic efforts. I know that RYSE will continue to have a positive impact on our community as much as its benefit to our young professionals. The City of Orlando looks forward to a long and lasting relationship with RYSE Magazine and we wish you continued success as you continue to “RYSE” in our community.
