Donesa Jackson - United Federation of Teachers/Retiree Council 24
"Once a union member, always a union member," said Donesa Jackson, UFT Retiree Section coordinator for Orlando, Florida. Prior to her retirement in 1996, Jackson was a chapter leader at PS 89 in the Bronx for many years. She was an education liaison at the Bronx Teacher Center, working with new teachers on certification issues. She served as a part-time pension consultant, and salary and licensing adviser at the UFT Bronx Office.
Jackson remains active in retirement, serving as the UFT's retiree leader in the Orlando area of Orange and Seminole counties; on the Orlando Central Labor Council; regularly coordinating with the American Federation of Teachers/Florida Education Association locals on issues and campaigns; and establishing a local chapter of the Alliance for Retired Americans. Due to her activism and political leadership, Jackson was a 2012 elected delegate to the Democratic National Convention.
