Miquel



Hi, my name is Miquel Jackson. I found myself coming to Dubuque in 2006 after I graduated high school. I’m from Cambridge, Maryland. I got here by luck of the draw, I had a scholarship to go to UTI for diesel mechanics but I still wanted to play football. I wanted to see what else was out there outside of Maryland and the east coast and I ended up here in Dubuque.

I’m reserved, more mysterious, but a good person with a kind heart. I just want everyone to be happy. Everything I work toward, I want to be happy and my friends and family to be happy. We all deserve that pursuit of happiness.
