St. Louis Photographer, Will Jackson
My name is Will. I live in Barnhart, Missouri with my wife, Susan, and 7 children. My oldest son lives nearby with his wife, Sarah. I enjoy reading (normally things related to God in someway), listening to podcasts (Fresh Air, This American Life, Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History …), and my work.
I’m an introvert, but I’m interested in relationships. I enjoy my wife and children. I’m interested in getting to know my neighbors better. I’d be interested in getting to know you.
My life was changed at the age of 18 when I had an encounter with God. I’ve been a different person every since. If you would like to know more, please ask.
… my daughter, Ellie, who critiques my writing for me suggested that I make my bio a little longer, so here goes …
I’m from a wonderful family that I enjoy now more than ever. I married Susan when I was 18 and joined the US Navy the same year. I did 4 years, and then we were expecting our first born near the end of the 4 years so I reenlisted for another 3. I took one of those assessment tests before I got out, and that led me to photography. Since then we’ve had several more children. We’ve had years of prosperity and years of barely enough, but it has always been enough. We’ve been well cared for and I’m still amazed that I get to do this.
Concerning the future … I don’t know … I’m interested in community. In being a part of, contributing to, and enjoying community.
PS. After writing this page I wrote a short account of the encounter with God that I referred to. I’ve linked to it HERE.
