To find Larry, try looking 10,000 feet above you. He doesn't fly as much as he used to, but he's a registered pilot who learned to fly after his service in the United States Army. In fact, Larry started his 41-year career in the communications industry with the U.S. Army's Public Information Office, where he was awarded the Army's Commendation Medal. From the service, Larry moved on to Ford Motor Company where he worked in public affairs and motorsports and then to a company owned by Bell and Howell where he was responsible for managing Ford's dealer marketing and training. In 1980, the entrepreneurial bug bit and Larry co-founded Jackson-Dawson in Detroit, a company specializing in dealer training and product launches for the auto industry. (The prime rate was 21%, so it was perfect timing!) In 1987, Larry moved back to his Greenville roots and opened what is now Jackson Marketing Group. He is very active in the Greenville community–both professionally and with Bible–based ministries–and loves spending time with Betty, his wife of 42 years, and his three children and three grandchildren.
