Velma Jackson High
Mark of Excellence
Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year!
I am LTC (R) Jennifer C. Expose-Francisco, the Senior Army Instructor for JROTC. I am starting my 8th year here at Velma Jackson.
I was born and raised in Columbia, MS where I graduated from Columbia High.
I retired from the US Army after 20 years of military service where I served the military throughout the United States and the World. I have had the opportunity to live in Hawaii, Virginia, Arizona, and Georgia to name a few. I deployed to Saudia Arabia, Kuwait, South Korea, Thailand, and Egypt.
I have two daughters: Bria ( 31 years old) and Brooke (24 years old).
The JROTC mission is to motivate young people to be better citizens.
I enjoy helping the cadets to find scholarships, colleges, and a career after high school. We also have many summer camp opportunities. (JCLC Camp Shelby, MSU LeaderState, National Flight Academy in Pensacola, FL, Boys State at Ole Miss)
