Julia Jackson is a San Francisco native whose passion and commitment to winemaking can be traced back to her family roots at Jackson Family Wines. Early on she learned the importance of hard work and, from picking grapes in grueling hot weather as a kid to working at several of the family vineyards afterschool and during summer breaks, the message was well received. The wisdom of her late vintner father coupled with the business acumen of her mother, Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke respectively, were the ideal seeds for an imaginative youth who was destined for the wine industry.
Carrying the lessons of the wine business with her to the Bordeaux, Julia spent a summer immersed in her other passion, French culture. She expanded her depth of knowledge about the wine business by learning the French style of winemaking and, being fluent in French, she went on to become a language teacher during her studies at Scripps College where she earned her BA in Studio Art. Since then she has supplemented her education with studies in General Management at Stanford University. Check this website for more info at Cambria Wines.
Today Julia offers a distinct perspective on the wine industry in Sonoma and asserts that Cabernet is one of the best varietal of wines in the region, despite the fact that it is most known for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Even with the responsibility of continuing a powerful legacy, Julia is paving her own path with projects like Cenyth, a wine label founded on friendship in collaboration with her long-time friend Hélène Seillan, and Rex Apps which Julia co-founded gives app users word-of-mouth restaurant and bar suggestions from trusted sources. With modern and innovative ideas like these, there is no doubt Julia will help the family business grow well into the future for the next generation of Jacksons.

She served as the chairman of the Council’s Education Committee, which required her to visit thousands of city schools.

To her, nothing was too irrelevant or too notorious to be studied, whether it would be based on lighting equality to the practices that teachers follow. Eva Moskowitz’s advocacy through her school’s teaching, curriculums, and design grew out of those familiarities, as well as her attempt at reform.
After successfully completing her Bachelors of Arts at the University of Pennsylvania as well as her Ph.D. in American history from the John Hopkins University, Eva Moskowitz became a history professor and educated many of her students about civics at Prep for Prep, which is a program that is specifically designed for minority students.
