Jarious K. Jackson (born May 3, 1977 in Tupelo, Mississippimarker) is an American and Canadian football quarterback. He has played with the BC Lions since the 2005 CFL season.

High School

Jackson attended Tupelo High Schoolmarker in Tupelo, Mississippi, and was a letterman in football, basketball, and track. In football, he won SuperPrep All-America honors.

College

Jackson attended the University of Notre Damemarker, where he was a two year starter and set school single-season records for passing yards (2,753), completions (184), and attempts (316) as a senior during the 1999 season. In the process, he broke the yardage mark held by the legendary Joe Theismann. (All of Jackson's records were subsequently broken by Brady Quinn.) Jackson also threw for 17 touchdowns during his senior year, ranking third behind Ron Powlus and Rick Mirer. He was second on the team in rushing with 140 carries for 464 yards (3.3 avg) and 7 scores.

Professional

Jackson was drafted in the 7th round of the 2000 NFL Draft, 214th overall, by the Denver Broncos. Pro scouts projected that Jackson could develop into a solid NFL quarterback if placed into the right system. However, after 4 seasons as a Bronco backup, he saw action in only 5 games, completing 11 of 22 passes for 114 yards.

Jackson also spent one season (2001) in Barcelona, as part of NFL Europe, where he competed in the 2001 World Bowl.

In 2004, Jackson signed onto the practice squad of the BC Lions in the CFL. He began 2005 on the practice squad, but was elevated to the active roster when CFL superstars Dave Dickenson and Casey Printers went down with injuries. He saw action in 2 games, had 3 completions out of 6 attempts for a total of 30 yards and rushed four times for a total of 35 yards.

At the beginning of 2006 season, Jackson began as the third string quarterback, behind Dickenson and Buck Pierce. However, with alternating injuries to Dickenson and Pierce, he made appearances in all but the final regular season game. 2007 proved, however, to be Jackson's break-out season as he became starting quarterback when Dickenson and Pierce were both out with injuries. For the 11 games Jackson was starting, he had a record of 9-2, threw for 2,553 yards, 18 TDs on 167 completions and 10 interceptions. On 4 February 2008, Jackson re-signed with the Lions 12 days before qualifying as a free-agent. At the beginning of the 2008 season, he was the back-up to Buck Pierce, but has started some games. His only pass in the Western semi-final was a touchdown toss to Geroy Simon.
