Who is White House doctor Ronny Jackson's wife Jane?
Jackson's wife Jane is a registered nurse who has worked as a nurse practitioner in Texas.
In this article, we will take a closer look at Jane Jackson and her life with her husband Ronny Jackson.
Jane Jackson was born in the United States, but information about her early life is scarce. She attended Texas Tech University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1992. She went on to earn a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas at Austin in 1997.
Jane Jackson has worked as a nurse practitioner for more than 20 years. She began her career at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, where she worked as a clinical instructor and nurse practitioner in the Department of Internal Medicine.
In 2006, she joined the staff of Seton Medical Center in Austin, Texas, where she worked as a nurse practitioner in the Department of Neurosurgery.
She remained at Seton until 2013, when she left to join the staff of the Austin Diagnostic Clinic, where she worked in the Department of Neurology.
In 2017, Jane Jackson moved to Washington, D.C. with her husband when he was appointed White House physician. She continued to work as a nurse practitioner while living in D.C., but it is unclear where she was employed during this time.
Jane Jackson and Ronny Jackson have been married for more than 25 years. They met while they were both attending Texas Tech University, and were married in 1991. They have three children together.
In addition to her career as a nurse practitioner, Jane Jackson is also a devoted wife and mother. In an interview with the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal in 2018, Ronny Jackson described his wife as “a fantastic mother and wife” who “does a great job holding down the fort while I'm gone.”
Ronny Jackson's nomination to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs was derailed by allegations of misconduct, including claims that he created a hostile work environment, drank on the job, and improperly dispensed medication. Jackson denied the allegations, but withdrew his name from consideration.
In the aftermath of these allegations, questions were raised about Jane Jackson's role in her husband's professional life.
Some reports suggested that she may have been involved in the administration of medication to White House staff, although there is no evidence to support these claims.
