About Jack Jackson, Past President, PRSA Boston – Inspiration for the Art of Writing workshops

Through his versatile and incisive writing, Jack’s expert tutelage was essential to many in news (WCVB-TV, UPI, Chicago Tribune-New York Daily News), public relations (Golin-Harris, Miller Shandwick), and to students, through his position as professor at Stonehill University.
