In 1966, Don Jackson,
the 1962 World Figure Skating champion, inspired by his love of
the sport and his keen interest in product design, developed the
original Jackson figure skate.
Don's dedication to the sport has been recognized
by his induction into both the USFSA and CFSA Halls of Fame. Four
decades later Don Jackson continues his active participation in
the sport and plays an integral role in the Jackson skate development.
President Kim Bauer, grandson of the founder of
the Bauer Skate Company, has assembled a management team with over
70 years experience in the skate industry. The management team was
given the mandate to produce a skate program which provides superior
products and exceptional value for skaters of all skill levels.
A state of the art skate factory was opened in
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, in March, 1996 [only a few miles from
the original Bauer skate factory which was established in 1927].
This major investment further demonstrates the continuing commitment
to product excellence.
In January, 1997, the Jackson Skate Company was
born, combining the inspiration of Don Jackson’s knowledge and passion
for the sport with over 70 years of skate experience and heritage.
Whether you are skating for pleasure or competing at a World Class
level, there is a Jackson skate for you. Happy skating!
