Jackson was born in St John's, Newfoundland, the son of Sir Henry Moore Jackson. Edward St. John Jackson was his young brother. He was educated at Stonyhurst College in Blackburn, England and Lincoln College, Oxford.
He was the 23rd Governor of Mauritius from 30 August 1930 to 7 June 1937 and was knighted on 3 June 1931. During this period the constitution was modified in 1933, and Dr Maurice Curé founded the worker's party as first political party in February 1936. Colonial secretary Edward Walter Evans (1890–1985) acted in place of him for these periods, when he was absent because of professional reasons.
