Biography. Dexters first NPC (National Physique Committee) competition was the NPC Southern States Championship of 1992, where he took 3rd.
He first competed in the Arnold Classic, Night of Champions, and Mr. Olympia contests in 1999, placing 7th, 3rd, and 9th, respectively.
At the 2007 Mr. Olympia, Jackson placed 3rd, and many critics said he would not likely place any higher. On September 27, 2008, he defeated the reigning two-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler to become the twelfth man to win that title, and only the second to have won it and the Arnold Classic title in the same year.
2008 was a great year for Dexter, as he won the Arnold Classic, Australian Pro Grand Prix VIII, New Zealand Grand Prix, Russian Grand Prix and the Mr. Olympia.
Dexter has been featured in many fitness and bodybuilding articles, including being pictured on the cover of Muscular Development and Flex magazine. He currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida.]
