CJ Jackson

Host, Business Review

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.

Even if you have a bad boss, if you drop your "baggage" and approach each day with a fresh start, you'll thrive and do better at work.
