Mama J herself — Jackson’s mother Christine — stops by the eatery occasionally to provide moral support.
“I named the restaurant after my mother to honor her. On her 74th birthday she went skydiving, and prior to that she went parasailing in the Caribbean, ziplining in the Congo, whitewater rafting in the Colorado River, and she’s now skeet shooting,” Jackson said of his mother’s adventurous side. “She was also Mother Goose with Walt Disney where she would travel around to children’s hospitals.”
Mama J’s is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday.
“Maybe by the first of the month we will do dinner and expand hours to 10 o’clock at night. We’re getting new equipment in by the first of November, which will allow us to offer a wider variety of home cooked meals,” Jackson said. “We’ve had a real good response from the community and we appreciate our customers. I encourage everybody who likes home cooking to come by and see us.”
