Born at York, he worked in Newcastle before studying engineering at Edinburgh University under Peter Guthrie Tait.On Tait's death in 1901, Jackson endowed a research fund named after him. His greatest engineering work in Britain from 1896-1907 was the extension of the Keyham Yard at Devonport Royal Dockyard at a cost of neary £4 million. During this period Jackson was a member of The Plymouth Institution (now The Plymouth Athenaeum) from 1897-1899. He first stood for office as the Conservative candidate in the 1904 Devonport by-election, losing to Liberal candidate John Benn. He stood for the seat again in the 1906 general election and lost again. He was finally victorious in the January 1910 general election, winning the seat again in the December 1910 general election and standing down at the 1918 general election.
