Jackson called the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, the national championship game between The Ohio State University and Miami. He also worked National Football League and NBA games, numerous World Series, 10 Olympics and auto racing.

"His influence as a broadcaster of all sports is forever". He called 15 Rose Bowls and 16 Sugar Bowls. "Thank you for the lessons KJ". Jackson was synonymous with the Rose Bowl as well as his catch phrase, "Whoa Nellie".
