Biography: Miles Jackson
 
Miles (Skip) Jackson, Jr., was born on August 31, 1974 to Miles Jackson, Sr. and Mary Lee Walker Jackson. Miles, Sr. was so delighted to have a son that he bought the boy a football when he was just ten months old. The baby took the football in his hands and never let it go. He was his father's son and pursued sports from elementary school, all the way through high school. He also ran track and was the captain of the swimming team.

Miles always made his parents very proud, with one exception: during his senior year in high school, he fell in with the wrong crowd and was charged with assault and auto theft. Caught at the local McDonald's® in a stolen car though only a back seat passenger, he was charged in the theft of the car. During a moment of panic, he punched a police officer while trying to escape. Miles, Sr. was able to convince the judge to let his son off with probation and a proviso that he do a hitch in the Army after graduation.

True to his word, Miles enlisted in the U. S. Army in June 1993. After boot camp, he was stationed in Germany, where he learned construction and found he had a knack for the work. Sadly, during his tour, his steady girlfriend of three years, Emma Ward, found someone new and sent him a "Dear John" letter. Since then, there has been no one special in Miles' life, but he has hope the right girl will come along sometime in the future.

Sadder still than the loss of his girlfriend was the death of his sister, Marietta, who died in a tragic accidental drowning just weeks before he was released from the Army. She was just twenty years old. Her death was especially hard on Miles, who was very close to his sister and greatly admired her musical talents, hoping one day to see her perform at Carnegie Hall. Marietta's violin hangs on the wall in the Jackson living room, as a reminder of their cherished loss.

After his hitch in the Army, his father helped Miles get a job as a concrete and asphalt equipment operator with The Mitchell Company, where Miles Sr. is a driver. His mother, Mary Lee, is a maid for the prestigious Stillwater family, carrying on her family's tradition as her own mother, Nerlene, had worked for the Stillwaters of Baton Rouge. Currently, Miles and his father are working on a new upmarket housing development, Kelly Green, on Oxford's outskirts next to an attractive wooded area known as Kelly Woods.

Outside of work, Miles is also involved with activities such as the giant pumpkin sale at St Peter's church in Oxford and the annual Christmas clothing and food drives. When he can find the time, he fishes and hunts with his long time friend, Joe Dankin.
