Jackson Fraser

Blond | Blue eyes | Prospective Glee Kid | Photographer | Wannabe Cop


Jackson Fraser, McKinley High sophomore, has faced a lot in his sixteen years on the earth. He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland to Scottish born mother, Mary, who was pregnant from a one night stand when she met Jackson's stepdad, Alistair. He was part of an identical twin set, however, his brother died just four days after birth being the weakest of the two infants. Jackson thinks it's cool he was a born a twin and can't help wonder occasionally what it would have been like to have a close brother, but being an only child was cool. His parents emigrated to America, Chicago to be exact, when he was just a baby and he grew up in a pretty average environment, with his father a sport's reporter for a local newspaper and his mother a midwife. Jackson never showed any particular talent or interest in anything until he hit middle school and found a keen love in photography after being given a camera for his birthday. That was what led him to decide he wanted to be a police officer when he grew up, and hopefully go into Forensics and Crime Scene Photography. Because of this, he loves science and art, getting good grades in both, where most of his other subjects he just comes in hovering around average.

In Jackson's Freshman year in high school, two years after his parents moved to Ohio for his father's promotion with another newspaper, he fell seriously sick and ended up in hospital for six weeks just a couple of months into the school year. Many tests, poking and prodding later, Jackson was diagnosed with early onset Multiple Scleroris and took the news as a heavy blow, believing his life was over. It took some time for him to get back on his feet, and although he missed a lot of school, he was able to keep up with the work and still complete his Freshman year. As a result, though, he fell completely out of the school social ladder loop and came to be a bit on the outer of with school life in general. The health scare gave him a new outlook on life, though, making him realise that he really did need to live for the moment because the illness could set him back again at anytime, with even a possibility of ending up in a wheelchair if he fell sick enough. Some days are better than others, and although he was tempted to not talk about what happened to him in the early days, he'll now answer questions about it if asked.

Jackson will try anything once, and is a pretty easygoing and approachable guy. He tends to unconsciously set in motion avoidance tactics if he isn't feeling well, only because it harbours an odd fear that people will start giving him a hard time if he is acting strangely and start filling in gaps for themselves. His yearning to enjoy life while he can has had him try (and fail) the football team and the basketball team that led him to decided he really wasn't cut out for athletics beyond frisbee or Wii Sports. He also tried the debate team, but got kicked off for switching viewpoints halfway through trying to argue for his side. Now with the increasing curiosity about Glee Club filtering around the school, he figures if he can sing in the shower, why not try out for Glee? A Slushie in the face was the least of his worries. He was pretty sure he could make a bigger fool of himself all on his own without the necessity for a Slushie, so as far as he was concerned, they could bring it on.

Because of the ever-present uncertainty about his illness at the back of his mind, Jackson doesn't trust very easily, but once he is your friend, he is 100% loyal. He has never had an urge to slot in with the "cool" kids, because he thinks it looks like a lot of hard work staying popular. Jackson is straight and dated a couple of girls before he fell ill, but he is nervous about inflicting himself on anyone anymore and doesn't like to contemplate his dating future too much. He figures if it's meant to be, he'll find a special girl one day to take him as he comes.

Jackson's backstory is as it stand above, save for his family moving to Lima, Ohio. In this verse, they stayed in Chicago and Jackson was accepted to the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. However, just six months into college, he fell ill again and landed in hospital for a good three months and decided that his dream to go into Forensics just wasn't conducive to his illness. During his recuperation, he threw himself right into his photography and started his own business picking up small weddings and family portrait sessions. He found he had a real gift for photographing people and ended up re-enrolling at college, this time with the Tisch School of Arts at New York University, and a few years later, graduated with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Photography & Imaging.

It was only up after that, and rather than slotting into a job, he started to freelance and made a name for himself after an in-depth portfolio at New York Fashion Week, where a handful of designers scrambled for his work. That was where he met Leslie Carter and they hit it off like ducks to water. They're close friends now, and Jackson is the epitome of her fag hag, only he very much has a dick. And now, in a turn of events Jack has been hopeful of for some time, he suddenly shows up on the doorstep of Amelia Jackson with an interesting surprise...

Jackson also exists in this GLEE post-McKinley college verse RPG. After high school, he applied for schools around the country (and even back in his home land, Britain) for Forensic Sciences. He was accepted to the John Jay College of Criminal Justice at the City University of New York. He shares an apartment with four others in New York's Upper West Side and works as a freelance photograper's assitant to pay his way through college.
