A former FBI terrorism supervisor in Kansas City is returning to lead the bureau’s efforts here.
Eric K. Jackson will serve as the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Kansas City Field Office, the bureau announced Monday. Most recently, Jackson served as acting deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division in Washington D.C., overseeing the division’s Intelligence, Outreach and Support Branch.
In Kansas City, he previously served as the assistant special agent in charge of the field office’s National Security Branch. He oversaw the office as acting special agent in charge during the 2012 investigation into two attacks on the Islamic Center of Joplin.
Before joining the FBI in 1997, Jackson served as a U.S. Navy hospital corpsman, earning the Navy Achievement Medal while serving aboard the USS Belleau Wood for his work on a mass medical casualty incident.
