Joined the Demons after being rejected by Richmond, where he suffered a severe head injury in an Under 19s game, but soon came into his own at Melbourne and won the club goalkicking in 1988, including five in the winning Preliminary Final. That year he represented the Australian Amateurs in the Bicentennial Carnival interstate tournament, eligible by virtue of having started his career in the VAFA.

Traded to Footscray for the Bulldogs' second pick in the 1991 Draft - which Melbourne used to select Phil Gilbert - Jackson didn't play a senior game at the Bulldogs after breaking his leg in a pre-season match against Richmond.
