  • Jackson Puckey Bio

    Jackson Puckey, a “lifer” at Hilton Head Prep, started 1st Grade in 2004 and graduated with the Class of 2016. While at Prep, he led many student organizations, co-founded the Varsity Sailing Team, and received the Charles A. Scarminach Award. Jackson went on to attend the University of Richmond, graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a double major in Political Science and Latin American, Latino, and Iberian Studies (and a history minor) in 2020. 

    Jackson’s passion for politics has taken him everywhere from the halls of Congress to the not-so-glorious campaign trail. Before taking his current position, Jackson worked on three different political campaigns (his candidate even won one of them!) and interned in the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, and the Virginia General Assembly. He now serves as a Field Representative for Rep. Nancy Mace (SC-01), representing the Congresswoman at events and meetings across South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

    Jackson lives on Hilton Head Island with his Coton de Tulear puppy, Reilley. He fills his (limited) free time by traveling, boating, beaching, and spending time with his grandparents. Now that he is back on Hilton Head, Jackson is eager to work with Hilton Head Prep to further opportunities for alumni involvement and mentorship of current students.
