Jackson’s Men

Roll of Jackson’s Men

Stephen Alonzo Jackson is regarded as possibly the most important man in Kappa Sigma’s history. Through his singular ambition, while a student at the University of Virginia to transform a struggling local fraternity into a strong national organization, Jackson fashioned our Ritual, wrote the Constitution, and was elected our first Worthy Grand Master.

“His love of the Fraternity knew no bounds, and his enthusiasm was so contagious that it influenced everybody who came within his reach.”

Francis Nelson Barksdale, 1873,
University of Virginia
(brother of Stephen Alonzo Jackson)

The Beginning


Born September 22, 1851, this esteemed forefather was left motherless in infancy and was raised by his grandmother. During the Fraternity’s second Grand Conclave in 1878, Jackson expressed his idea of an enduring and expanding brotherhood as he address the Order: “May we not rest contently until the Star and Crescent is the pride of every college and university in the land,” and to that end Jackson worked day and night to the end of his busy life.
