Jennifer Heights never meant to get pregnant, but sometimes life happens. She’d been out clubbing with some friends at a muggle club, when she’d gotten a little too much to drink, and ended up doing the hokey pokey with a random korean muggle man. This in turn, got her pregnant. Considering she was from a high end U.S. wizarding family, it was not a good look for her. At first, she wasn’t going to have the kid, but when her parents tried to forcefully impose this decision on her, she decided to fight back by having the kid. The baby boy was born october 23, much to her parent’s chagrin.
Growing up, Jackson was the black sheep of the family. While Jennifer’s parents didn’t cut her off, they were always very disrespectful towards her and Jackson. Although she could take it, she never wanted him to go through their scorn, and tried to create him to be a proper wizard of high standings, thus being very hard on him. Unfortunately, Jackson seemed to have inherited his mother’s wild streak, and desisted from her teachings. Even his first bit of magic at 6 was rebellious; his mother had been trying to make him wear a suit for a formal event, and every time she put a new suit on him, he turned it into a clown suit.
If Jackson had acted like his grandparents expected of a boy from a good wizard family, and carried their looks, maybe they would have accepted him more. He was quite wild however, and ended up looking more like his absentee father than anyone in the family. Most would probably assume he was adopted.
Tired of her family, and the disapproving wizard society she lived in, Jennifer moved the first chance she could, after marrying an english wizard named David Smeltings. Jackson was about eight. Arriving at David’s house in Bristol, Jackson was quite excited to find he had a large library, full of interesting reading material from both the muggle and wizarding world. He spent his days learning there, providing himself some self learning. When he received his letter for hogwarts, Jackson protested against the idea of going to a proper wizarding school, begging for his mom to just let him do his own thing. She refused however, and thus he is now going to hogwarts for his first year, at eleven.
In his thrd year, Jackson moved back to New York, then to San Francisco to live on his own (with a butler). After much correspondence with his old friends, he decided to come back to Hogwarts because man, things had gone to utter shit.
