Over the course of his 12 years in pro football, three-time Pro Bowler Steven Jackson cemented his reputation as one of the most dedicated, relentless and selfless running backs in the NFL.
While his career numbers—11,438 rushing yards, 3,683 receiving yards and 68 touchdowns—rank among the all-time best in the game, Steven’s drive to succeed, leadership and dedication to the teams and communities for which he played are equally noteworthy. These same qualities continue to define Steven today as an entrepreneur, businessman, philanthropist, husband and father of four children.
During his time in the NFL, Steven also showcased a wide variety of talents off the field. He pioneered and produced some of the most forward-thinking, football-based video series on the Internet. In 2011, Steven was one of five worldwide Webby Awards nominees for Best Online Sports Video for producing “A Week in the Life With Steven Jackson”. Steven also cultivated his own interest in art, which culminated in his own art show at one of Los Angeles’ most prestigious galleries in the summer of 2014. Steven collaborated with world renowned artist Michael Kalish on an exhibition of his own art at Los Angeles’ prestigious Hamilton-Selway gallery. For art and world travel, Steven has been profiled by USA Today, ESPN, Yahoo Sports, Fox Business, HBO’s Hard Knocks and many other local and national news organizations.
In addition, Steven has worked in guest roles as an on-air commentator and analyst for ESPN, NFL Network and often appears as a guest on Fox Business News discussing various topics on sports, philanthropy, business, politics and his humanitarian work. In 2018, Steven scaled the towering Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and to build water wells in Tanzania. Steven strives to uplift and empower those around him as he continues to build his legacy.
Engaged in numerous ongoing entrepreneurial efforts, Steven most recently co-founded the lifestyle brand OBS and the Original Barber School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
