He retired on disability from police service after suffering a heart attack while on duty. His medical condition led him down a path to help people in other ways.

He took on 230 companies for discrimination and won all of the cases.
He is now a consultant for the Department of Justice. He has served on the Governor's Council on People with Disabilities, the Rehabilitation Services Council and the Consumer Advisory Council. He established several substance abuse programs to reach out to those needing help. Seeing the variety of needs, Colonel Jackson also produced an extensive line of safety products including an All Hazards Warning System for the deaf.
