Bo Jackson Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Vincent Edward Jackson was born on November 30, 1962 to his absent dad, A.D. Adams, and his industrious mom, Florence Jackson Bond. He works to keep most of his current affairs confidential, but does make regular charity appearances. He’s best known for being an explosive two-sport professional sportsman in the late 80s and early 90s.

During youth, his never-ending trouble-making and unbelievable stamina earned him the nickname “wild boar,” which finally became “Bo.” When his extra energies were concentrated into sports, a transformation occurred. The Bo Jackson of legend came to be.

Bo Jackson shone as a multisport athlete at Auburn University and took the media by storm as he was made to create a decision between playing professional baseball or football. In a 1985 article in People magazine, scouts remarked that “He Is got as much ability as Mickey Mantle or Willie Mays” and, for football, “Perhaps he is the greatest ever.”

Jackson won the Heisman trophy in 1985. He also qualified for the U.S. Olympic Track and Field team. After school, he turned down the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 4-year, $7 million contract to play baseball for a wages under $1 million. During his career he played in a Pro Bowl and an All-Star game (a homerun where capped off his legednary “Bo Knows” effort).

Now, Bo remains far from baseball and football. He’s a banker, motivational speaker and gym owner. His training facilities are estimated to bring in $300,000 per annum. The bank he’s involved with has over $180 million in assets. Over the span of his professional career as a baseball player, Jackson brought in $6.8 million. As a football player, he got $6.1 million.

Just how much is Bo Jackson’s Net Worth? $16 Million!
He along with his wife Linda are the parents of three kids, sons Garrett and Nicholas, and daughter Morgan. Meanwhile, he also is one of several investors in an Illinois bank. His present estimated net worth is $16 million. The next year, he was the top choice in the National Football League draft, but chose to play baseball. In 1987, he chose to play both baseball and football after signing with all the Los Angeles Raiders. During his baseball career, he brought in $6.8 million, and as a football player, $6.1 million. Additionally, he brought in additional funds for commercial sanctions, and received $4 million after his football career was suddenly stopped with a hip injury.
