About Me

Will Jackson

Hi, I Am Wil Jackson

Established in 1984.
Wil Jackson is the owner of Modern Electric and loves serving the Burbank and Greater Los Angeles Community. Originally from St. Thomas, he spent time fishing & diving, but his pride came by serving locally with St Thomas’ Water & Power Department.

While attending Parks College of Aeronautical Technology in Illinois, he met Anne, who would become his wife. They moved to Burbank, California, where Wil took an apprenticeship, passed the California Electrical Contractor Test, and earned his electrical contractor’s license. He established Modern Electric in 1984 to service local customers. Whether replacing a light switch for an elderly customer, installing an electrical panel for a celebrity customer, or representing a property management customer, Modern Electric has come to represent quality-driven, licensed work, with a friendly touch.

From Wil regarding his children growing up in Burbank: “Having my children graduate from Burbank Schools has been such a blessing; Anne and I are forever grateful to the teachers who helped them grow.”
