About Amy Jackson
Upon her return to Memphis, she worked as the Lifestyle Editor for The Evening Times in West Memphis, Arkansas. On March 28, 1990, Wayne Jackson, co-founder of The Memphis Horns, came to town for his mother's retirement party and to have an interview with Amy for the paper. They clicked, and he invited her to dinner the next evening. The two were married on December 22, 1990.
Amy was pondering law school when an opportunity arose to work as a litigation paralegal. It was an ideal career fit that allowed her the flexibility to take advantage of the travel opportunities that Wayne's career provided. For the remainder of their marriage, she worked as an independent contractor in many different areas of law including family, estate, managed care defense, antitrust defense, federal criminal defense and corporate compliance.
Her legal background was an essential ingredient in the Jackson team approach to the music business. Sometimes referred to as Team Wayne and Amy, the pair worked beautifully together....Wayne blazing trails in music, Amy following the money and tracking the ever-changing industry. They were blessed to have 26 years together before he passed away on June 21, 2016.
