John JacksonResident Faculty
Before teaching, I worked in industry in both high-tech and entrepreneurial sectors. I did research, development, and design of original software and computer systems for plant automation, robotics, digital communications, machinery controls, OEM automated manufacturing systems, and systems integration. After my industry stint, I started a successful consulting business and co-founded a successful small business. During the small business venture, I began teaching Statistics, Information Technology, and Computer Science courses at Maricopa Community Colleges, Arizona State University, and Grand Canyon University. I spent time in Oregon as an Assistant Professor of Information Technology and Business Analytics at Oregon Institute of Technology.
Prior to SCC, I worked in operations and testing with two major autonomous (self-driving) vehicle companies.
I attended Baylor University and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Quantitative Analysis. After Baylor, I attended Texas A&M University and earned an MS in Statistics with a minor in Industrial Engineering.
