Our firm was originally established as William F. Jackson, An Accountancy Corporation in October, 1978. Before that date, Bill Jackson operated an accounting practice from his home above Blue Lake, CA. Since the 1940's, Bill provided tax and accounting services while teaching Accounting and Business Administration at Humboldt State University to many of our current community leaders as well as many others currently in the accounting profession. In 1987, Gene Eklund became an owner in the firm and the name was changed to Jackson & Eklund, An Accountancy Corporation. In years following, Jo Ann Hunt, Robert Sutter, Larry Wood, and Bryan Reeser have also become owners in the firm.
Over the past 30 years, Jackson & Eklund has grown to a staff of 19. As we have grown, we have tried to keep the same family atmosphere that Bill and his wife Peggy created when the firm was located in their home. As we have added staff over the years, it has been a pleasure to have them become part of our family and to watch their families grow. In many cases, the first job for the children of our staff was with Jackson & Eklund.
We are interested in supporting our local communities. Many of our staff members are active in local service and professional organizations (Rotary, Soroptimist, BNI), sit on Boards of Directors for non-profit organizations, and we are particularly interested in youth sports.
We have a long history of maintaining a warm, personal relationship with each of our clients while offering high-quality, professional accounting services. We will strive to serve you in the same warm and professional manner.
William F. Jackson
1919 - 2006
