Biography

David Jackson’s articles have prompted congressional hearings, law enforcement indictments and legislative reform. He has been at the Chicago Tribune since 1991 except for one year at The Washington Post, where he shared the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service with two reporters and a data analyst. At the Tribune, David has been a Pulitzer finalist three times: for a 2011 series with Gary Marx that interviewed dangerous fugitives who live with impunity in foreign countries; for the 1999 series “How Troubled Kids Became Big Business”; and for a 1995 investigation of the Nation of Islam that spurred a federal probe of then-Chicago Housing Authority chief Vince Lane, who was imprisoned. Jackson and Gary Marx were awarded the 2011 Medill Medal for Courage in Journalism.
