The article presents a profile of the Jackson family. Jesse Jackson Sr. is the President of Rainbow/Push Coalition. Jackson ran for the presidency in 1984 and 1988. Never far from controversy, he prayed with pop singer Michael Jackson during the pop star's child-molestation trial, negotiated with foreign dictators including Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein to free American captives and, most recently, toured the devastation along the Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. One of his sons Jesse Jackson Jr. is a Democrat, elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1995. His son Jonathan Jackson is the co-owner of River North Sales & Service.
