Tristan Jackson (born March 5, 1986) is a former professional Canadian football defensive back, playing nine seasons in the league.[1] He was signed as a street free agent by the Edmonton Eskimos in 2008 where he played for three seasons before being traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

In a 2012 game against the BC Lions, Jackson returned a missed field goal deep in his own end zone for a 129-yard touchdown.[2]

When I caught it, I was going to take a knee, but I seen two guys outside, and we had two guys, I always believe in my guys up front.[2]
