Julia Jackson, the middle child of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke, recounts her childhood picking grapes with her father, in a recent interview. Julia tells about her experiences working in the vineyard, with her father and siblings, in 100 degree weather. This work ethic instilled a passion in Julia at a young age. This work ethic has carried Ms. Jackson through her school and work career.
Julia began working while still in school. Over the summer Ms. Jackson worked in the Jackson wineries owned by the family. After completing high school, she attended Scripps College from 2006-2010. In 2010, Julia graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and began a summer internship at the Stanford Summer Insitute of General Business Management. Ms. Jackson currently works with the International sales team at Jackson Family Wineries. View more posts from Julia at Pinterest.
The Jackson family works with Kendall-Jackson and Sonoma wines. Julie stands by the Sonoma Cabernet wines. Sonoma is best well known for its’ Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but is gaining interest in their Cabernet.
Among her many other accomplishments Ms. Jackson has been vocal in the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment program. This non-profit organization celebrates women that have not only survived but thrived in times of hardship. Julia believes that she has become what she is today because her mother has set such a great example. She wants to be that same type of role model for other young girls.
