If appointed, Mr. Jackson would be filling a vacancy that occurred when Board Member Gionne Ralph resigned. Mr. Jackson would complete a partial term and would be eligible for re-appointment for another three-year term.
Mr. Jackson is currently the owner and Coach of Jackson Wink MMA and Jackson's MMA Acoma. Mr. Jackson has spent many years as a volunteer teaching police departments around the country how to reduce the need for violent or lethal force and de-escalate interactions. He has developed a unique style, thanks to his expertise in mixed martial arts, that helps officers keep suspects safer while keep themselves safer as well. Mr. Jackson believes his experience and trained eye in this area will make me a crucial asset to the board as we review matters concerning use of force. Mr. Jackson is an active member of our community who steps in and volunteers wherever he feels he can be of service to our community. As an instructor of Mindfulness techniques, he hopes that the unique quality of that skill will be an asset to the Board.
