Ted JacksonTed Jackson
Ted Jackson was born in McComb, Miss., in 1956 and is a graduate of Parklane Academy, Southwest Mississippi Junior College and the University of Southern Mississippi.

After two years with the Daily Iberian in New Iberia, La, he joined the New Orleans Times-Picayune in 1984. While covering news, sports and daily assignments for the paper, he photographed his first major photo essay, “Desire, Death of a Dream,” an essay on life in the Desire housing development, one of the country’s worst. Other projects have included the opening of the Berlin Wall, the Persian Gulf War, life in Cuba and political upheaval in Haiti. In 2003, he photographed “LEAP Year,” a local story about high-stakes school testing, where he documented one eighth-grade class through their year as they prepared for the LEAP test. The photos won the 2003 American Society of Newspaper Editors Award for Community Photojournalism.

In 1997, he was one of a four-person team that won a Pulitzer Prize for public service for “Oceans of Trouble,” a comprehensive look at the impending collapse of the world’s fisheries. Through the years, he has covered the physical destruction and emotional trauma of earthquakes and hurricanes, most notably, Hurricane Katrina. For their coverage of Hurricane Katrina, the Times-Picayune staff won a Pulitzer for public service and another for breaking news.

Ted and his wife, Nancy, live in Covington, La.
