One of the first indigenous players to make his mark in league football, Jackson initially wanted to join Richmond but Jack Mueller helped lure him to the Demons as a 21-year-old in 1947 instead. He had also been sought by Northcote. After impressing in the seconds was quickly promoted to make his debut early in the season.
He missed the first four rounds of 1949 with an ankle injury, but returned to play every match for the season from then on.
Jackson joined Tongala in 1953. The next year he moved to Echuca and won Best and Fairest for the Bendigo League before coaching in Mildura, Alexandra and Thornton. At Thornton he led to the club to its one and only premiership in 1961.
Also referred to as "Ted Jackson" in contemporary newspaper articles. Some sources have his origin club as Echuca East.
