Owner/Handler: Mark Hanson
651 Champion Points
Legendary Status Champion
6 Super Major Championships
1 Major Championships
Jackson became a Hanson family member halfway through the first year of his
life. He had no idea that he would have such a wonderful life ahead and the
Hanson’s had no idea that Jackson would leave them with so many wonderful,
lifelong memories. And, what an adventure Jackson and Mark had!
New to the game, Mark and Jackson jumped right into the action and never looked
back. Jackson shined as a puppy where he became the 2008-2009 Wisconsin Series
Puppy Pointer Dog of the Year and closed the season by becoming the 2009 BDC
Puppy Pointer National Champion. After moving up to play with the “big boys,”
he obtained some exceptional, noteworthy titles: 2011-2012 Wisconsin Series
Single Pointer Champion Dog of the Year, 2011 BDC World Single and Double
Pointer Champion, and 2011 BDC National Double Pointer Champion.
Jackson, gone too soon, was making a statement; following in the footsteps of
his father, Reggie. In the field, whether tournament or pleasure hunting,
Jackson would move through the field, methodically, with his head high, combing
through the cover ensuring that no game was left behind. A warrior in the
field, he was also all heart, making him a gentleman in the home. He truly
enjoyed family time, where he looked forward to resting his head on Mark’s lap
after a job well done in the field. Bless his heart.
