Jackson was an average South Carolinian. He enjoyed his hunting, trucks, and anything else remotely country in nature, despite him being born along the coast. He was visiting Chernarus during a gap year between the end of his college career and the beginning of life in the real world. Jackson went with his best friend who was like Jackson in many ways, though he was much more of a partier than Jackson was. Jackson was hoping to get some hunting done while in the country as he had not been able to do much at all during college. Unfortunately for him, he chose a poor time to choose this country. It didn't take long for his friend to die thanks to the hysteria around the situation. Since the outbreak he has been scavenging for whatever he can, and trying to find anyone that will take him in, hoping to forget about his friend.
