Vincent Jackson (born January 14, 1983 in Colorado Springs, Colorado), nicknamed "Action Jackson", is an American football wide receiver who currently plays in the National Football League for the San Diego Chargers. Vincent Jackson, sometimes referred to by his initials, V.J., or shortened to "VJax", has been selected to one Pro Bowl, and finished in the top fifteen and top ten in the NFL for receiving yards during the 2008 and 2009 seasons, respectively.

Jackson attended Widefield High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. As a senior, he was a Rocky Mountain News All-State Honorable Mention, a first team All-Area pick, and a first team All-Conference pick. He also was a standout in basketball. A straight-A student in high school, Jackson was accepted to Columbia but decided to attend University of Northern Colorado on a partial scholarship to play both basketball and football.

Jackson played college football at the University of Northern Colorado. It was one of the few colleges that recruited Jackson out of high school. One of the few true freshman ever to play for the University of Northern Colorado, Vincent earned All American Honors as a punt returner, scoring the first time he ever touched a ball on a punt return against Adams State College (CO). He rewrote the record books on the way to becoming Northern Colorado's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards (game & season), KR yards, PR yards, receiving touchdowns. His senior season was highlighted by a 13-catch 249-yard, 3-touchdown effort against Florida Atlantic.
