Tell us a little about your family/home life.
Life is always exciting at the Jackson household! My family (Becky, Weston 5yr and Bentley 4yr) and I currently reside close to ski round top where we have 2 great Danes (Winston and Layla), 2 cats (Garfield and Cloe) and a few other misc. pets the boys seem to find. We spend much of our time outside where the kids enjoy riding ATV’s, trying out different sports and helping dad with projects. I have found you have to keep them busy or watch out!

First job where I got heavy into IT was when I worked for Rite Aid at their command center in Camp Hill.
