Dedicated to achievement and community improvement, Jamal Jackson is an unwavering advocate for educational empowerment. Following the passing of his Mother in 2009, he realized that he had a compelling message to share. Fueled by his desire to uplift, Jamal began sharing story. Through reflecting on his past trials and victories, he has compiled a story of hope and determination in striving to attain personally identified success.
Jamal is a firm believer in the quote of Charles Swindoll which states, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” Remaining ever-focused on the legacy and lessons of his Mom, he passionately shares personal stories of failure, heartache, trials, joy, and victory in a manner that captivates the audience, captures their attention, and drives home the message that success isn’t for the few, everyone is destined for greatness.
Receiving his Juris Doctor and Masters of Business Administration from Creighton University in May of 2012, Jamal has worked in the field of legal as well as business consulting for individuals and businesses during his educational career. However, Jamal’s greatest sense of achievement comes from the work he does in the community. Both as an individual and as a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., he has engaged in countless hours of giving back in an effort to help those around him get ahead. Jamal’s main goal in life is to continue the legacy of his Mother through continuously spreading a message that helps individuals remove their own barriers from blocking personal success, while ensuring that the legacy he leaves behind will be one that uplifts for generations to come.
Jamal has experienced the power of giving first hand. As a kid Jamal grew up in a single-parent household and watched as his Mom worked tirelessly to elevate them from poverty. In this, he witnessed the kind-hearted people who helped his Mom along the way. Jamal understands that his Mom’s work was only made possible by the individuals who gave selflessly of themselves to help her. As a result, his Mom was able to better the situation of the entire family. Throughout this process Jamal’s Mom repeatedly instilled in him that no one achieves success of his/her own accord; it takes a team and someone willing to give a hand-up, not a hand-out.
Jamal has been involved with various programs through which he gives back and has dedicated himself to become more involved in not only the community at large but in the personal lives of young men and women striving to do better for themselves and their family.
When I lined up several CEO’s of small businesses to speak at my university on the subject of what today’s entrepreneurs are looking for in their new hires, I got a 2-fer in Jamal Jackson. He spoke not only from the content of strong management, entrepreneurial and professional practice experience, he delivered his message with an inspirational passion equal to some of the best motivational speakers I’ve seen. Put Jamal in front of your team for both grounded perspective and inspirational purpose.- Stephen R. Grove, Managing Partner, EA, Net, Inc., Adjunct Professor, Northeastern Illinois University
