Steven attended Eldorado High School, and during his time there played as a running back for the school’s football team. He was named the Sunrise Regional MVP, despite the team losing in the state final against McQueen High School. He also lettered four years in track and field. Thanks to his success in football, he attracted the attention of a lot of college football programs, which eventually prompted them to check the Las Vegas area more often.

Jackson then attended Oregon State University, and played for the Oregon State Beavers for three seasons. He played a total of 36 games and would rank second in all-purpose yards in the school’s history. He also ranked third in the school’s all-time scoring list. During his junior year, he was ranked ninth in all-purpose yardage, fourth in scoring, and tenth in rushing.

During the 2004 NFL Draft, he was overlooked by a lot of NFL teams due to a knee injury that prevented him from attending the 2004 NFL Combine. He was drafted as the 24th overall pick by the St. Louis Rams, and would sign a five-year $7 million deal with a $2.05 million signing bonus, a steady base to his net worth during his rookie season. He played limited time and was mainly a backup for Marshall Faulk, but still performed well. In 2005, he became a starter for the team, and the following year he would have his breakout season, partly thanks to their new head coach Scott Linehan, who changed their offensive strategy. Thanks to his achievements, he was named to his first Pro Bowl and was voted the 2006 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and was also named the Rams MVP in the same year. During the next year, he expressed concerns about being underpaid, which led to a six year contract worth $49.3 million with an $11.4 million signing bonus.

This boosted his net worth tremendously, and made him the highest paid running back in the NFL, however, after the 2012 season, Jackson opted out of his contract, hoping to get a starting job with another team.

In 2013, he signed a three year contract with the Atlanta Falcons but had a lackluster season. He improved in 2014 but was released the following year. He then signed with the New England Patriots and would score his first playoff touchdown in the AFC Championship Game, however the Patriots would lose.

For his personal life, it is known that Steven wears the number 39 as a representation of the number of books in the Old Testament. Details of any relationships are unknown.
