Jackson moved to Chernarus in his late Teens accompanied by his Grandfather. After many years of anguish and dread he finally decided to pack up his life in the UK and head to somewhere remote and tranquil. Life was better, they had bought a small cabin just north of Elecktro. Life was better now and Jackson felt like he was getting a purpose from this sudden retreat. Not long after Jackson's Grandfather fell seriously ill. He had difficulty breathing and would wake Jackson every night bellowing out his lungs, things turned serious and his Grandfather began coughing blood one night. Jackson rushed him to the nearest hospital and awaited the news, Doctors approached Jackson in the atrium and delivered some bad news... his Grandfather had passed from severe internal bleeding ruptured from his coughing. Jackson felt numb, he stayed awake that whole night on the floor of his cabin, crying and smoking for hours until the sun's rays pierced through the curtains. Jackson was alone... When the bad news hit Jackson moved fast and alone, avoiding contact with everybody; he was a very cautious individual.
