JJA celebrates 70 years of providing architectural design services in the region, established in 1950 as a family owned business. Jack C. Jackson founded the company with Lila H. Jackson serving as business manager. Jack H. Jackson joined the firm in 1970, and thus the firm is also recognizing Jack H. for his 50th Year of Leadership at JJA. Jack H. has served as Architect, President, and currently CEO/Chairman of the Board of Directors. Eileen Korth joined the firm in 1998 and was promoted as President in 2014, a position she holds today with the firm. Jack H. Jackson and Eileen Korth make-up the current Board of Directors for JJA.
Jackson-Jackson & Associates, Inc. has provided architectural and engineering design services to this region since 1950. The founder, Jack C. Jackson, worked at the Glen L. Martin Bomber Plant during WWII and then numerous other engineering associated positions after the war. Jack C. opened his first office on January 2, 1950, at 538 South 20th Street, Omaha, NE. Since he had just recently been working for the Sidles Company, selling air conditioning systems and engineering, they offered him his first commission, which was a new Sidles Company office building and warehouse to be located in Lincoln, NE, at 1649 M Street.
Jack C.'s first projects consisted of light commercial buildings and custom homes. On June 1, 1952, he established a partnership with Brandy Backland, who was primarily a Civil Engineer and established an office at 4924 Poppleton Avenue to provide both engineering and architectural services. Jack C.'s design of the Cuming Courthouse in West Point, NE, was his major project during this time period. This partnership was dissolved in late July, 1953, due to non-compatible objectives for the firm.
Jack C. then re-established himself as Jack C. Jackson, Architect on August 1, 1953 and on August 29, 1953, Jack C. went into partnership with a housing developer, Tony Battiato. This partnership developed a number of housing projects, including a group of houses on Martin Avenue west of 30th Street in Keystone at 80th & Evans Street and at numerous other locations. All were custom designed.
One of the highlights of this partnership was the design and construction of a house known as the "Chrysler House". The Chrysler Corporation was a major sponsor for the Lawrence Welk Show. One of their divisions started to manufacture heating and air conditioning equipment for the housing market. This house was one of the first houses in the US to incorporate their equipment. As a way of promoting this division for Chrysler, the Lawrence Welk Band stopped in Omaha to promote the opening of this house and the new Chrysler HVAC equipment. Jack C. was fortunate enough to meet Lawrence Welk and interact with many of the band members.
On March 31, 1957, Jack C. left Battiato-Jackson and re-established his company as Jack C. Jackson Company, as an individual proprietorship, designing light commercial and custom homes in the Omaha area. On e of his most significant projects during this two year period included the design of the Bell Tower at the Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery at 78th and Mercy Road, Omaha, Nebraska; and the design of a residence for Senator Sam Reynolds on the north edge of the Omaha Country Club. As a token of Sam’s satisfaction with the house, Senator Reynolds gave Jack C. a magnificent gold perpetual motion clock, which remains in the family today as a valued heirloom. 
In November of 1959, NP Dodge Company asked Jack C. to join them in developing the Maple Village Neighborhood. Jack obliged and designed many custom houses for that area and other subdivisions where NP Dodge wanted to build housing. He was instrumental in designing these houses to be modularly constructed off site to save costs and improve speed of construction. He also designed the Maple Village Swimming Pool and Bath House and the Club House at the Maple Village Golf Course, which became Warren Swigart Golf Course and is still in use today.
August of 1962, NP Dodge decided not to pursue the construction side of the industry, so Jack C. left NP Dodge and re-established the Jack C. Company on September 1, 1962. Jack C. had remained in contact with Bill Durand with whom he was partners with in the potential start-up of an aircraft company after WWII. They decided to establish the firm of Durand-Jackson & Associates on April 1, 1963, constructing an office building at 11550 N. 84th Street. They designed small commercial projects and worked with a developer in Bellevue on Multi-Family Housing, Single-Family and Custom Housing. Jack H. started as a draftsman here during summer break from college to start to learn the business.
Jack C. left the company, over a disagreement pertaining to how funds were managed and he re-established the Jack C. Jackson, AIA, Company on April 1, 1965. He worked out of his residence at 8014 Evans Street, with his wife Lila H. Jackson, serving as the office manager and bookkeeper. During this time he designed the new Corporate Headquarters Building and Main Distribution Center for the May Seed and Nursery Company in Shenandoah, IA, and numerous houses for the executives, including Ed May.
Son, Jack H. Jackson, joined the firm March 1, 1970, after receiving an Architectural degree from Kansas State University and spending two and a half years at the San Francisco Bay Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, California. The shipyard constructed and refurbished nuclear submarines. Jack H. was charged with design work to modify the buildings on the shipyard to meet changing required uses. This experience afforded a good education in providing detailed construction and renovation projects demanded by the Navy.
The firm moved to 1905 North 81st Street, Omaha in March 1971. One of the first major projects was the new KMTV Television Station at 107th & Mockingbird, which started to establish the firm as a major commercial architectural firm. The firm grew and became more established, becoming a partnership in 1974. Jack H. became President in 1984 and Jack C. remained as CEO and Chairman of the Board. In 1989 the partnership was changed to a Sub-chapter S Corporation.
Jack C. Jackson worked with the firm until he was 78 years old, at which time health concerns restricted his activities with the firm. He passed away on February 6, 1997.

Lila Jackson continued to serve as the Business Manager and Bookkeeper since the firm was established in 1950 until her 70th birthday in 1990, when she retired. Lila served on the Board of Directors until her passing September 30, 2012.
A celebration of the firm's 50th Year Anniversary was held on September 29, 2000, at the German-American Society, Inc. with many clients, associates and other guests attending.
On March 1, 2014, the firm relocated to 6912 N. 97th Circle, Omaha, providing for more space and to better accommodate the major change in our industry, which was to shift from hand drawn documents to computer generated drawings and specifications. Architect, Eileen Korth, was promoted to President and Jack H. Jackson remained as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. Today the firm, Jackson-Jackson & Associates, Inc., currently consists of a staff that are very dedicated to the continuing success and mission of the firm "To provide sustainable architecture that contributes to the human well being.".
