Todd Jackson, BA’96, EMBA’08, received the inaugural Alumni Volunteer Award from the Vanderbilt Alumni Association Board of Directors. The award recognizes an alumnus who has positively represented the institution and its mission and has a significant pattern of volunteer service to the university.
As founders and co-chairs of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center Young Ambassadors, Jackson and his wife, EB, helped raise $250,000 and award seven Discovery grants to innovative cancer researchers at Vanderbilt. Those grants have generated an additional $2.4 million in research funding. Jackson, strategic operations consultant specializing in health care at the CTD Group, also helped increase volunteer and giving participation as president of Owen’s Alumni Council. He also served as fundraising chair for his fifth-year Reunion.
Editor’s note: We are sorry to report that Todd Jackson died June 9, 2014, after an extended illness and after the print version of Vanderbilt Business went to press. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends.
