Vickie Jackson

Vice President

My Name is Vickie Jackson and I am a Bond Hill native of 50+ yrs. I’m honored to have been recently elected as the Vice President of the Bond Hill Community Council.

I attended Bond Hill Elementary School, Crest Hills Jr. High School and graduated from Woodward High School in 1977. I also attended the University of Cincinnati where I majored in Medical Science. My amazing Son Brandon Jackson served in the Ohio Army National Guard and did a tour of duty in Iraq (2002-2003). In 2006, my son Brandon passed away but lives on because he was an organ and tissue donor. Brandon’s gift saved 7 lives.

In 2010, I retired to pursue my love for pets as a professional Pet Sitter and became a LifeCenter Ambassador.  These opportunities are very rewarding and for my efforts I have been honored with the LifeCenter Champion for life Award and the LifeCenter Theodore E. Smith award in Recognition of Service Promoting Organ & Tissue Donations in the Tri-State area. I was also honored as a hometown Hero by the University of Cincinnati & LifeCenter in 2013 & 2015.

I have also held several elected positions as a Bond Hill / Roselawn Precinct Executive (2014) and Board Member of the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (2014). In addition to the aforementioned, I am currently a volunteer with the Office of Human Relations and a member of the City of Cincinnati’s Animal Task Force, the Cincinnati Citizens on Patrol, Gold Star Military Mom which focuses on Grief Support Programs for Veterans and Military Families, T.A.P.S (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) and ASPS (American Suicide Prevention Society).

I have many wonderful friends and family members here and look forward to working together to create a proactive and productive community. Together we will embrace diversity, be financially strong, economically connected, and will leave no one without a VOICE.

The 2018 Bond Hill Committee is focused on listening and creating great partnerships. Our goal is to improve the quality of life in Bond Hill. Together we can shape & change the climate in our neighborhood, increase public safety, and improve police-community relations. Our objective is to empower residents strategically with mutual trust which is the core component to reinforcing our social fabric.

We have a lot of work to do. I invite you to join me. Together we “Are The BOND”.
