Jackson Janes is a senior at the University of Illinois, studying journalism and statistics, and currently works in the University of Illinois athletic department. Janes hails from the north side of Chicago.
He also serves as the Associate Director of the Student Media Poll but does not vote, playing a crucial role in recruiting members and shaping the direction of the organization. He has served in this position since Spring 2021.
Fun facts: Jackson is a lifelong fan of the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, Arsenal and Chicago Fire. When he isn’t watching sports, he is probably hyping up Justin Fields, complaining about the United States Men’s National Soccer Team or traveling somewhere cool (he’s visited 45 U.S. states).
