Myron Jackson (born May 6, 1964 in Hamburg, Arkansas) was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks in the fourth round of the 1986 NBA draft.

Jackson attended the University of Arkansas - Little Rock where he was a four year letterman and two time All-TAAC selection. He appeared in 120 games for UALR, the most by any player in school history. His scoring average increased each year from 5.9 points per game as a freshman to 19.4 ppg as a senior.

In his senior year, Jackson was selected TAAC Player of the Year (the only player in school history to earn that honor) and led the Trojans to their first-ever appearance in the NCAA tournament and a first-round upset of Notre Dame.

He graduated as UALR's all-time leading scorer and still ranks number four on the list with 1,371 points. Jackson was inducted into the University of Arkansas - Little Rock Athletic Hall of Fame in February of 2007.

The Dallas Mavericks drafted Jackson with the 85th overall selection in the 1986 draft. He appeared in eight games with the Mavs, totaling 22 minutes, and averaging 1.4 ppg and 0.8 assists per game.

After his short-lived NBA career, Jackson joined the United States Navy in 1988, where today he is a Chief Petty Officer stationed in San Diego.
