Jackson Janes is a junior at the University of Illinois, studying journalism and statistics, and is currently the sports editor at The Daily Illini. Janes hails from the north side of Chicago.
He also serves as the vice president of the Student Media Poll, and played a crucial role in recruiting members and shaping the direction of the organization.
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).
