Jackson LB 🐾 Managing Director/ President of Research & Development

Jax Seafood's namesake, inspiration and HBCIC ( Head Border Collie in Charge) is a rescued  Border Collie / Australian Shepherd mix who likes to keep things interesting, to say the least. When he isn't running Jax Seafood & Jax Chews, he enjoys spending time with his family, laying outside, not listening, not going for long walks, cuddling, masterminding his next escapade, eating, breaking into the pantry and cabinets, not getting yelled at by mom, and helping out other rescue dogs. Thank you all for checking out both Jax Seafood & Jax Chews.
