Robert Jackson was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin. As a youth, he was exposed to an environment of drugs, gang violence, and absent fathers. Basketball helped mold him into the leader he is today.
Mr. Jackson graduated from Marquette University with a BA in Speech Communication. He spent the majority of his professional basketball career overseas playing in Spain, Germany, and South Korea. When he returned to Milwaukee, Jackson desired to give back to the community that supported him into the man he is today. He worked for various community-based organizations inspiring others to walk in purpose. He has been employed with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee for 14 years. This career choice has aligned perfectly with his desire to work and support a community like one that helped shape him.
