Lt Col Benji Jackson

I graduated college from Southeast Missouri State University, got married and spend 21 and a half years in the Air Force. We ahave two children our daughter has graduated from Mizzou and is teaching in Missouri.  Our son is enrolled at Baylor University in Waco, TX.

While in the Air Force I worked in hospitality and human resources, deployed 4 times to Saudia Arabia, Iraq (twice) and Niger.  I also spent a full year in South Korea away from my wife and daughter at the time.  We were able to live in Germany for three years and see a lot of historical locations while there.

With my service concluded I began teaching at Soldan in July 2019 and enjoy sharing leadership examples to grow and develop future leaders in our community.
