Jackson the Bulldog

  

Chief Security Officer (CSO)

  • Able to leap tall pillow forts in a single bound
  • Moonlights as a bodyguard in the Kreitz household
  • Motto: I come, I see, I slobber

Jackson is our Chief Security Officer, in charge of defending estorm against baddies who may mean us harm. A dog of few words, he defeats his foes by attempting to sit on their laps. If this doesn’t work, he ignores them until they go away. Often mistaken for Ron Swanson, he is easily bribed with steak, chewable balls of all types, and a scratch behind the ear from his favorite e-stormer, Mel. While others may powernap, Jackson powerwakes, raising his head to look around for 5 minutes every hour. His snores serve as a cautionary tale to staff that anyone found sleeping on the job or even slacking off may be subject to sniggers, pointing, and doggie snacks from a foil pouch instead of catered lunch.
