Born in Columbia, South Carolina, Patricia Jackson attended Eau Claire High School. While there, she also studied cosmetology at vocational school. In 1968, she met her husband, David. After they were married, her husband joined the United States Army. They served two separate three-year tours of duty in Baumholder and Karlsruhe, Germany.
Jackson currently works as a process technician building heavy trucks for a major trucking company. She has also worked as a cosmetologist for over 35 years. In 1996, she was proud to have been selected to volunteer for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, where she ventured on her own to work with complete strangers. In her spare time, she enjoys endurance racing (50 miles), breaking and training horses, and four-wheel riding.
Patricia Jackson lives in Lugoff, South Carolina, with her husband of 31 years. They have two children, Davey and Charles (C.J.). An avid equestrian, she owns an Arabian horse, Blaca, and a National Spotted Saddle Horse, Susie. In addition to their dogs, Frankie and Boo Boo, they also have a couple of cats and goats that live in their barn. Her birth date is April 8.
Patricia Jackson was placed on the Maraamu Tribe. Everyone quickly realized that they had not been provided food or water and later discovered their food source was plentiful fruit trees. She was impressed by Hunter Ellis when he took on a leadership role. On Day 2, Maraamu made fire. Later, the tribe found the water source. It was a small creek that was barely noticeable. At the first Immunity Challenge, Maraamu dropped their torch in the water, sending them to Tribal Council. Peter Harkey started lecturing the tribe on how to vote out someone. Patricia got the impression that Peter was going to vote against her because of her gender, age, and physique. The speech worked against Peter and he was voted out in a 5-2-1 vote.
After receiving votes against her at the previous Tribal Council, Patricia became more authoritative. This annoyed Sean Rector and Vecepia Towery, though her work ethic impressed Hunter. Rotu barely beat out Maraamu at the Reward Challenge. Maraamu lost immunity again because Rob Mariano was unable to eat fafaru. Patricia agreed with Hunter about sending Sarah Jones home due to her laziness. Unfortunately for Patricia, Rob formed an alliance with Sarah, Sean, and Vecepia. They targeted the truck assembler for her allegiance with Hunter, for her bossiness and for being a weak link in challenges. Patricia was voted out in a 4-3 vote.
