Jackson works as a general contractor.
He is a member of the Democratic Caucus and the Jefferson Parish Legislative Delegation.
In the 2010-2011 legislative session, Jackson has been appointed to the following committees:
|Louisiana House of Representatives General Election, District 87 (2007)|
|Girod Jackson, III (D)||N/A|
In 2007, a year in which Jackson, III was up for election, he collected $7,216 in donations.
His four largest contributors in 2007 were:
|Girod Jackson, III||$2,000|
|Crescent Engineering Group LLC||$1,559|
|Louisiana Housing Development Corporation||$1,500|
|Louisiana Home Builders Association||$500|
In 2012, Jackson will re-introduce a proposal in which he will resume his efforts to increase the number of minority judges in Louisiana's 24th Judicial District. His hopes to implement his plan through House Bill 523 were dashed when time ran out as the session ended on June 23. 
Currently, out of the 16 judges on the court, two are African-American, and are elected from a subdistrict in which minorities comprise the majority of voters. Jackson has proposed that a third judge be elected from that same subdistrict, or the next subdistrict that sees a vacancy after January 1, 2012.
