Jackson was raised in Groton, South Dakota and enjoyed helping at the family farm run by his grandfather and uncle near Houghton, SD. He attended South Dakota State University where he studied Agricultural Economics, as well as Ag Marketing. After completing a Grain Marketing Internship at a large Co-op in Northeast South Dakota, Jackson realized how complex, yet key, creating a strong marketing plan is to the success of the family farm. He was then afforded the opportunity to intern with Hurley & Associates in 2014 where he strengthened his knowledge about farm risk management.
Jackson was hired on as a Farm Marketing Consultant with Hurley & Associates in January of 2015. His favorite part of the job is applying personalized marketing plans to each individual producer, as well as furthering clients’ education in the marketing tools available. Jackson enjoys golfing, hunting, and helping out at the family farm during harvest during his free time.
