James Jackson (born April 21, 1881 in Boston, Massachusetts [1]) was an American politician who served as Treasurer and Receiver-General of Massachusetts from 1920-1924.

Jackson, a former banker and the New England Chairman of the Red Cross, announced his candidacy for State Treasurer on August 30, 1920.[2] Jackson was appointed Treasurer and Receiver-General on September 8, 1920 following the resignation of Fred J. Burrell.[3]

Jackson was one of the founders of the Sentinels of the Republic, an organization that opposed what it saw as the federal encroachment on the rights of the States and of the individual.[4]

Instead of seeking reelection in 1924, Jackson ran for Governor of Massachusetts. He lost the Republican nomination to Lieutenant Governor. Alvan T. Fuller.

After his political career, Jackson worked as an arbitrator and a private trustee.[5][6]
