Rick Jackson is a recurring character in the School Daze series. He is a classmate of Tom and the gang in Essentials to Literacy. He appears in almost every episode.
Unlike most of the freshman in C Period, Rick is the most calm. He is the only one who doesn't shout, freak out, or say something off-topic, making him a model student. He often sits with Tom and the gang at lunch. In "Presenting a Ceramic Production!", it is revealed that he had Mr. Kannenburg and Mr. Edwards as his teachers in Middle School. He's been appearing in almost every episode since Uncle Funtime 3.
Rick has fair skin, blue eyes, and brown hair. He also sports glasses. His outfits vary throughout the series, but he is mostly seen in 2 outfits. In the 8th Grade Adventures series, he wore a red hooded jacket, a white undershirt, black sweatpants, and gray sneakers.
