Tony Jackson Job
Tony Jackson is an adventurous person and has ventured on multiple jobs. Starting his career as a college football athlete, Tony went on to be drafted in NFL in 2005 by Seattle Seahawks. He was a sixth-round pick (196 overall), given a three-year $992,300 contract by the team. They said, “Jackson is a blocking specialist who doesn’t have much fantasy potential.”
Later, Tony then went to join star teams like Oakland Raiders, and New York Giants.
In November 2011, Tony then joined Life Leadership Company as a financial, professional, personal development coach. He went on to work there for almost 7 years until he started working at his wife’s dermatological clinic, Lilly Dermatology. He worked there as its CEO and chief financial officer.
Over a year later, Tony then started his own business called Jackson Media Group in December 2019.
Sharing a little about his work ethics, Tony said, “We believe that information and association is what shapes people and the world we live in. My passion is adding value to individuals and building teams.”

Tony Jackson And Dr. Mercy Odueyungbo: Wedding, Kids
Tony Jackson first met his future wife Dr. Mercy Odueyungbo back in 2002. But it wasn’t until 2015, the two held their wedding and went on to have a beautiful kid named Lilly.
Their daughter turned 3 in 2021 and was often seen over the duo’s family pictures. The last we saw Tony and Dr. Mercy with their daughter was at Toluwani Odueyungbo’s (Dr. Mercy’s sister) graduation ceremony in May 2019.
Recalling their first encounter, Tony shared that he physically ran into Dr. Mercy at the student union of the University of Iowa in 2002. But instead of apologizing, he kept staring at her. “I was stunned and could not speak. Those eyes literally left me speechless,” Tony shared.
Naturally, Dr. Mercy (not knowing the reason) believed that Tony simply lacked manners.
However, Tony made up for it later and asked Dr. Mercy to be his science tutor. And the rest is history.
Fun Fact: Tony and Dr. Mercy were all set to participate in the Dancing with our Stars to benefit U.P Hospice Foundation in 2020.
