EJ writing on Emily:

is Emily Jackson? She is one very special young lady. Her character
is impeachable; she is incredibly smart; beautiful, and, an accomplished
athlete at age 15. She has developed from a new kayaker on the scene
in 2003, into the girl to beat in 2005, in the Pro Women’s
class as well as in the junior women’s class. Her river running
and creeking skills have soared in the past year opening up a whole
new world of paddling to her. She will be tackling the Zambezi and
Nile Rivers this winter, while preparing for the 2006 World Cup.
Team JK is extremely lucky to have this talented young lady on board,
and even luckier that her last name is Jackson.
