We have added another incredible professional from Florida State University to our team! Jared Jackson, a graduate of the FSU Real Estate program and previous team captain of the FSU Seminoles, has joined our commercial real estate team as a Sales Associate.
“We are elated to bring on such a fine representative of FSU to our growing team in Tallahassee,” states Justin A. Beck, CEO of Beck Partners. “Jared brings the drive, leadership and work ethic we look for in everyone we bring on board. This industry requires competitiveness with a focus on teamwork. That is exactly why Jared is going to be a great fit for us.”
Jared Jackson is a Division I Scholar Football Athlete with FSU where he went from a walk-on wide receiver to a team captain. His football career has been a successful one winning National Championships in 2013, ACC Champions in 2013 & 2014 and Orange Bowl Champions in 2016. He recorded 11 tackles as a junior, had 18 tackles over the past two seasons and was almost always the first FSU player down the field on kickoff coverage.
He interned with RFT Asset Management in the Property Management division working with multi-family properties and the owner of Southern Lawn Management. Jared has a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship and Real Estate. He has also spent time as a Life Coach for Project Connect where he mentored and educated troubled teenagers.
“I chose Beck Partners because of its team atmosphere, the leadership and the innovative goals in place,” states Jared Jackson, new Sales Associate at Beck Partners. “My football career has taught me how to utilize a team to accomplish a common goal and that is what I hope to be able to contribute here.”
There are many qualities taken from the football field that apply to the commercial real estate landscape. There must be a plan that is executed by dependable and accountable team members. The industry is constantly evolving, competitive and high energy. Replace the fans with clients and you have a high stakes game in an exciting environment that leads to another deal done and project complete.
As a native of Monticello, he is proud to represent his community and the Tallahassee area as a whole. Jared is also still training in an effort to try out for an NFL team.
