Brilliant Factory project leader, GE Healthcare

Marcell Jackson is committed to investing in the futures of local youth.

As GE Healthcare’s Brilliant Factory project leader, community service co-leader of the company’s African American Forum, and relationship manager for 53rd Street School, one of GE Healthcare’s partnership schools, he has sparked enthusiasm for STEM activities among many students.

Jackson, who has been doing volunteer work since high school, donates more than 140 hours a year to STEM programs and events at Milwaukee high schools. Among them are a robotics group at 53rd Street School, STEM Olympics at Riverside University High School, and a coding program at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy.

According to Kelly Skindzelewski, GE Healthcare community relations manager, Jackson “believes volunteering is one of the best ways to understand the community and people who live here.”

Last April, for his contributions to the Milwaukee community, Jackson received a GE Healthcare Community Spirit Award.

“He is a champion among his peers at work,” Skindzelewski said.

“I would like to thank (GE Healthcare) for nominating me for this award and instilling such a high level of volunteerism into the culture. I would also like to thank my beautiful wife for supporting my many, many volunteer endeavors. And my mom and dad, for instilling in me and being amazing examples of what it means to not only lead, but to serve as you lead.”
