Jeffery "J-SQUARED" Jackson
Jeffery “J-Squared” Jackson, 27 years old, is a native of the Eastside of Atlanta, Georgia. Jeffery is the founder and owner of J-Squared Productions, where they conceptualize, produce, execute high quality productions, photoshoots, music videos, and films. Jeffery is the son of Adrienne Jackson, a graduate of the University of Georgia and currently employed at Delta Air Lines, and father, Jeffery Jackson, former NFL defensive linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers.
Jeffery’s educational journey was busy as he attended 4 college institutions: Andrew College (Cuthbert, Ga), Pai Chai University (Daejeon, South Korea) where he studied abroad, Lincoln University (Jefferson City, Missouri), and Georgia State
University (Atlanta, Ga). As a collegiate athlete, Jeffery managed to complete his matriculation with 2 degrees (Associate of Arts from Andrew College: Bachelor of Arts from Georgia State University, and a certificate of completion from his Korean studies abroad). Also notable to mention, Jeffery was initiated into the ETA Sigma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. in 2016
While in college, Jeffery found himself pursuing positions in the film industry full time, and in 2016 started working with LVRN/Interscope with an artist by the name of Soacejam Bo. This collaboration quickly catapulted him to dream bigger and accomplish more than he had ever imagined. In 2021, Jeffery received his first 3 RIAA certified plaques for his contribution to 2 highly successful records, Vedo “You Got It” (RIAA certified platinum), and BRS Kash “Throat Baby” (RIAA certified platinum). These were two of many accolades Jeff has received, but of course Jeffery didn’t stop here and continued to dream even bigger.
After his hard work paid off and he achieved these accomplishments in the music industry on the creative side, Jeffery decided to move into the narrative world of film, and in 2022 Jeffery released his debut film “Mindf*cked.” This film was picked up for a license deal from P. Diddy’s network, Revolt TV.
As we see, Jeffery doesn’t get comfortable with wins, big or small. He continuously seeks to go bigger, ultimately pushing forward with his plans to own an entire city strictly used for filming. The best is yet to come for this young creative filmmaker and entrepreneur...so keep watching!
