A talented runner with the ball in hand and solid defender JT Jackson made his first mark on South African rugby while he was still at Hoerskool Oakdale.
He represented SWD from U13 right through to U18 and in 2014 he was named in the SA Schools side.
The following year he represented TUKS in the Varsity Cup and made his first class debut in the Vodacom Cup.
His performances for Tuks and the Bulls earned him a call up into the South Africa U20 squad and ultimately named in the U20 World Cup squad.
It was much of the same for the youngster in 2016 as he was once again named in the South Africa U20 squad.
Later that year he was named in the Bulls Currie Cup squad but he failed to make his debut.
In 2017 he was included in the Bulls Currie Cup squad and made his debut in the opening round against the Griquas.
Jackson impressed during the 2017 Currie Cup and was named in the Bulls 2018 Super Rugby squad.
In 2019, Jackson joined the Southern Kings.
