— Who makes Jackson Kayak fly? I am a business owner who is successful because my team is running like a well tuned racing engine. Each member of the home team is responsible for more than the tasks their title suggests. Jackson Kayak started out as a family run business and there it remains, but now the family has grown to a community of paddlers, builders, shippers and more. Our little office in Sparta is now two full factories of activity and our growth continues with its staff as our heartbeat. From Jase, our first employee to team members around the globe, our family keeps growing and all of us connected in ways only found at Jackson Kayak!
