Biography

Innovation-lover and director of communications and marketing at the Hankamer School of Business, CJ Jackson is also a public radio show host and Iowa State alum.

Before coming to Baylor, CJ worked for NCR Corporation 13 years, where she learned the power of high-functioning teams, global reach and impossible deadlines.

CJ’s talents are not just limited to marketing and communications. She was the winner of a twist contest – you know, the dance – at age 3 and to her knowledge, holds the world record for the longest cross-country trip in an electric car. When she isn’t working or driving on sun power, she’s hanging out in her craft room or volunteering at the local public radio station.
