Ciudad (pob., 2000: 735.617 hab.) en el nordeste del estado de Florida en EE.UU. Los primeros colonizadores europeos de Florida, los hugonotes franceses, llegaron a este lugar en 1564.

Su diseño data de 1822 y recibió su nombre en honor a Andrew Jackson; se constituyó como ciudad en 1832. La ciudad resultó casi totalmente destruida por el fuego en 1901. En 1968 se unió con la mayor parte del condado de Duval; ocupa una superficie de 2.178 km2 (841 mi2), lo que la convierte en una de las ciudades más grandes de EE.UU. en cuanto a extensión. Es un puerto de aguas profundas con astilleros importantes y es el principal centro de transporte y comercio de Florida. Es sede de la Universidad de Jacksonville, la Universidad de Florida del Norte y el Jones College.
