John Jackson named president of William Jessup University

William Jessup University
March 14, 2011
William Jessup University today announced that Dr. John Jackson will become the sixth President of the University, the Greater Sacramento region’s only accredited private four-year, residential university.

Dr. Jackson, 49, currently is Executive Director of Thriving Churches International and Executive Pastor at Bayside Church in Granite Bay, Calif. He holds a PhD in Educational Administration and Organizational studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara and is author of several books on leadership, communication, and church ministry. He is the Founding Pastor of LifePoint Church in Northern Nevada. He also has served as an adjunct faculty member both at Tozer Theological Seminary and Simpson University.

“We are delighted to have John take on leadership of William Jessup University as we build on the institution’s tremendous growth since the relocation of the main campus to Rocklin,” said Pat Gelsinger, Chairman of William Jessup’s Board of Trustees. “John brings a strong track record in leadership development, innovation and financial management as the University continues to fulfill the need for Christian higher education in Northern California.”

William Jessup University, was founded in 1939 as San Jose Bible College, and relocated its main campus to Rocklin in 2004, when it was renamed after William Jessup, who founded San Jose Bible College. The university currently serves over 750 students, more than double the number it served in San Jose.

The selection of Dr. Jackson follows a national search that brought over 250 applicants. The appointment comes after the retirement of former President Bryce Jessup, who served as president for 25 years and currently holds the position of President Emeritus.

Dr. Jackson will take office beginning on March 23, 2011.
