Jackson announced his retirement after the 1987 season to run Kenny's Korner, a deli in Camden, New Jersey. He re-signed with the Eagles during the 1988 season.[4]

Coaching career

Jackson served on the coaching staff at his alma mater for eight seasons, coaching Penn State's wide receivers from 1993 to 2000. There he helped develop future NFL players Bobby Engram, Freddie Scott, and Joe Jurevicius. He served as an assistant coach with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2001 to 2003.
