Dr. Jackman is the Executive Director of the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE). NAAE started managing the CASE Initiative in 2010 and Dr. Jackman serves as the Financial Manager of CASE. 

In 1996, Dr. Jackman was hired as Executive Director of what was then the National Vocational Agricultural Teachers Association (NVATA). Since that time, the organization has changed its name (to NAAE) to better reflect the school-based agricultural education profession. Dr. Jackman was raised on a family farm near Glasgow, Kentucky and resides in Georgetown with his wife, Sharon, two Labrador Retrievers, and a Boykin Spaniel.
