My father always said one day said that the animals would reclaim the planet. He made sure that his TX gas formula would help them do that.
— Jackson to the team in Clementine

Jackson Oz is a main protagonist of the CBS TV series Zoo. He is the son of Robert Oz and Elizabeth Oz, and stepson of Minako Oz. He is a zoologist who aided his best friend Abraham Kenyatta a safari guide as his partner and animal expert, until they were recruited to help stop recent animal attacks his father predicted. Throughout the series Jackson serves as the group's animal expert, alongside the team's veterinary pathologist Dr. Mitch Morgan.

Early Life

Jackson Oz is the son of doctor Elizabeth Oz and professor/scientist Robert Oz. As a child he used to go with his father in weekend expeditions all over the country to study and observe animals. However, Robert used to have some weird behaviors around his son. One example of this was when he asked Jackson if he wanted to buy a soul. Jackson was only 12 years old at the time.

His behaviors started getting weirder and one time, at a weekend expedition, Robert locked himself and Jackson in a motel room because he believed squirrels were trying to attack them.

The way his father acted was affecting their family, so, to get away from him, Jackson made his mom accept a job offer in Botswana, Africa. It was there where he met his current best friend, Abraham.
