Dr. Jackson passed away in November 2016. For all of his numerous accolades and accomplishments, Dr. Jackson considered himself an educator and mentor to students first, helping launch the careers of many scientists, criminologists, and researchers now active in the STEM fields. To honor his legacy, MassBay has established the Dr. Bruce Jackson Endowed Scholarship Fund to support the cause he championed the most, our students.
