DCS Corp.'s Jack Jackson was raised in Baltimore, Maryland, as one of nine kids and the son of a local sports journalist. While Jackson and his siblings all attended Catholic school growing up, he chose a different path when it came time for college. Rather than head to a state university, Jackson chose to attend the U.S. Naval Academy. This would be the start of his professional journey.
In this episode, Jackson shares stories of his six years in the Navy including three years on a ship and two working for NATO, what he learned during this time (failures and all) and how seeing a bit of the world changed his perspective. He left the Navy to start a big family, spending years with General Electric working in remote, small towns around the country. He shares how he shifted from business to a human resources role and how his family growing up sculpted his understanding of how to deal with people. Tune in to hear how Jackson ultimately landed leading HR at DC Corps., and the impact his experiences have on him today.
