Our NameJackson Jade

With the development of a new business posed the challenge of naming the business. Renée wanted a name that represented a passion in her life that would represent the passion she had for her profession and company. She naturally turned to her family. “Jackson Jade” originated from her two of her greatest loves – her niece and nephew.
