Ketanji Brown Jackson Children: Meet Talia Jackson and Leila Jackson
Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in as Supreme Court Justice on Thursday, June 30. Naturally, both of her daughters Talia and Leila were there to show her support, and they looked extra proud of their mom.
The girls were also acknowledged (along with their dad Patrick G. Jackson) by Chief Justice John Roberts, before he gave their mom the oaths. “I would like to recognize Dr. Patrick Jackson, who is here, her husband, and her daughters Talia and Leila,” he said.
Here’s everything you need to know about the two young ladies who hold a very special place in Ketanji’s heart.
Meet the Jackson children, Talia and Leila
Talia Jackson is Ketanji’s oldest daughter. At 21 years old, Talia is currently in college but was able to take time to support her mother as she was present on the first day of Kentaji’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
She kept it classy wearing a black floral print dress as she watched her mother speak. Ketanji’s address in today’s hearing wasn’t the first time she has directly addressed being a parent to her two girls.
Leila Jackson is Ketanji’s youngest daughter. At just 17 years old, she has proved that she has plenty of ambition. She rocked a lavender suit as she sat beside her big sister during their mom’s hearing. The teenager has envisioned this day for a long time now. When she was 11 years old, she wrote a letter to Barack Obama, as per Heavy, requesting that “while you are considering judges to fill Justice Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court, I would like to add my mother Ketanji Brown Jackson of the district court to the list.”
