SSEF Jackson Fellowship

The G.J. Jackson Fellowship is awarded annually in memory of the late Geoffrey Jackson. Mr. Jackson was for many years a leader in the Canadian structural steel fabrication industry and was a founding member of the SSEF. This prestigious award is currently valued at $20,000 over a one year period and is presented annually to an engineering student who, in the following academic year, will be registered in the first to fourth year of full-time graduate studies in structural engineering, with major emphasis on the study of steel structures. The award, presented at the CISC Annual Convention, is commemorated with the G.J. Jackson Memorial Certificate.

G.J. Jackson

Geoffrey James Jackson was born in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England, February 25, 1929.  After receiving a Diploma in Civil Engineering in 1954, he emigrated to Canada.  He was devoted to the improvement of the structural steel industry in Canada. Mr. Jackson served on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction from 1962 and was Chairman from 1976 to 1978.  He was also a long-time member of the Board of the Canadian Steel Construction Council; Chairman of the Interim Board of Governors of the Steel Structures Education Foundation; and served on the Board until his death on August 31, 1986.
