Lisa P. Jackson is a member of New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine's cabinet. She currently serves as Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), having been sworn in to office on February 28, 2006. [ [http://www.state.nj.us/dep/commissioner/ Office of the Commissioner] , accessed September 14, 2006.]

As Commissioner, she leads a staff of 2,990 professionals dedicated to protecting, sustaining and enhancing New Jersey’s water, air and land, and preserving its wealth of natural and historic resources.

Previous Employment

Before her nomination by Governor of New Jersey Jon S. Corzine, Jackson served as the NJDEP’s Assistant Commissioner for Land Use Management during 2005. Jackson headed numerous programs including Land Use Regulation, Water Supply, Geological Survey, Water Monitoring and Standards, and Watershed Management. She focused on developing a system of incentives for stimulating the right growth in the right places. Under her leadership, the NJDEP crafted regulatory standards for implementing the landmark Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act.

Jackson joined the DEP in March 2002 as Assistant Commissioner of Compliance and Enforcement after 16 years with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), initially at its headquarters in Washington, D.C., and more recently at its regional office in New York City.

As the state’s chief environmental enforcer, Jackson led groundbreaking compliance sweeps in Camden and Paterson, communities in which the effects of pollution on public health had long been neglected. She launched the environmental initiative following multicultural outreach efforts to inform and involve community residents and businesses. Working with county officials, New Jersey State Police and the EPA, the NJDEP then mobilized more than 70 inspectors to conduct upward of 1,000 compliance investigations in the two cities, the first of a series of enforcement sweeps.

During her tenure at the EPA, Jackson worked in the federal Superfund site remediation program, developing key hazardous waste cleanup regulations, overseeing hazardous waste cleanup projects throughout central New Jersey and directing multimillion-dollar cleanup operations. She later served as deputy director and acting director of the region’s enforcement division.

Personal

A native of New Orleans, Jackson earned a master’s degree in chemical engineering from Princeton University. She is a summa cum laude graduate of Tulane University’s School of Chemical Engineering. Jackson resides in East Windsor with her husband Kenny and their two sons.
