Judge Jackson thanks husband in heartwarming speech
“Speaking of unconditional love, I’d like to introduce you to my husband of 25 years, Dr Patrick Jackson,” the nominee said during her speech.
“I have no doubt that without him by my side from the very beginning of this incredible professional journey, none of this would have been possible,” Judge Jackson said, as her husband who was seated behind her, subtly wiped his teary eyes.
“We met in college more than three decades ago, and since then, he’s been the best husband, father, and friend I could ever imagine.”
“Patrick, I love you,” she said at the end.
The judge had a very special message for her daughters too.
She said: “Girls, I know it has not been easy, as I’ve tried to navigate the challenges of juggling my career and motherhood. And I fully admit that I did not always get the balance right.
“But, I hope that you’ve seen that with hard work, determination, and love, it can be done.”
