Jenny Jackson

Director of Communications


Jenny grew up on a family farm west of Springfield, near Jacksonville, IL. She spent her younger years in 4-H and FFA and credits those organizations for her personal growth. Showing hogs and cattle for 11 years instilled leadership, responsibility, and dedication upon her.


She graduated from Jacksonville High School, then continued to Lincoln Land Community College where she earned an Associate’s Degree in graphic design. From there, she transferred to Western Illinois University and additionally earned a Bachelor’s in Agriculture Science. 


Jenny enjoys volunteering at the Morgan County Fair and being part of the inagural committee who hosts the Morgan County Fair Gala, to raise funds for the 4-H portions of the fairgrounds. She is also active in the Cass-Morgan County Farm Bureau and leadership roles within Young Leaders. 


She has been with Team Pork since 2017, leading communication and youth/education efforts. She enjoys promoting the pork industry to younger generations with hope that they will also pursue a career within the livestock industry.
