At the age of 11 she decided to focus solely on acting, and with the help of mentor Bob Feldman, projects started to pour in. She appeared in various television shows like “Roc”, “My So-Called Life”, “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper” and “The Steve Harvey Show”. Slowly, these guest appearances started to build her name and her net worth. When she turned 13, she also made a project of her own, in which she wrote, produced and directed her own school film. Her efforts were recognized by the Directors Guild of America giving her an Award of Distinction.
While being active on the small screen, Jackson also starred in some movies like “Boom Box”, “Grand Avenue”, and “CB4”. However, her big break came when she was cast for the show “Moesha” in which she played the lead character’s best friend and roommate Niecy Jackson. The show made Jackson a household name, catapulting her to major success, and certainly increasing her net worth.
With this successful show, she was also led to do the hit movie “Good Burger”, with Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. After that she starred in movies like “Love and Basketball”, “Steppin: The Movie” and “I Do… I Did”, with her net worth rising steadily.
Aside from her acting prowess, Jackson is also a very talented singer; she was part of a singing group called “Mpulz”, and then became part of MTV’s Celebrity Rap Superstar in 2007, in which she was named the ‘Last Celebrity Standing’, beating playboy bunny Kendra Wilkinson. Jackson has also had her fair share of reality shows when she became part of the show “The Ex-Wives Club” in 2007 with Marla Maples and Angie Everhart, and in “Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp”. Her appearances in reality shows have also contributed to her popularity and net worth.
In 2005, Jackson started a foundation named “S.H.A.R.”, which stands for Sharing, Helping, And Reconciling Lives. The goal of her foundation is to encourage others to turn their unfortunate events into empowering ones.
In terms of her personal life, Jackson has four children. Her eldest son Donnie and daughter Cassie are from her relationship in high school. Later, she was engaged to Kevin Federline, with whom she has a daughter named Kori Madison and son Kaleb Jackson, but after three years the two broke up in 2004 – their separation caused major headlines when Federline began a relationship with pop star Britney Spears, right after their break up. Shar is currently single.
Today, Jackson is busy managing the career of her daughter Cassie and their group “Pulse” and is appearing on the television show “Hollywood Divas”.
