The Addicks skipper will see his current deal expire at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.
The 31-year-old has been at The Valley since 2010, making well over 100 appearances for the club.
He has also been a regular source of goals, both in League One and the Championship, and would like to think that he has done enough to be deserving of fresh terms.
Jackson said in the Evening Standard: "It is up in the air but I would obviously love to stay.
"They have not sat down with me yet but I love it here and always have done since I joined. I am captain now and I am enjoying my football more than ever.
"This has been the best part of my career and I want that to continue. I have still got a lot of football left in me and hopefully it will be here at Charlton.
"It is out of my hands, all I can do is get myself fit and get myself playing regularly again."
Jackson has been nursing a niggling ankle complaint this season, but is confident he will soon be back to peak fitness.
He added: "It has been stop-start this season but I feel like I am just about there now.
"I had a full pre-season and then three days before the first game I got injured in training and missed the first three or four games.
"I got myself back in and was starting to feel fully fit when I broke down again.
"It has been really frustrating but I took my time a bit more with this one and the manager eased me back in. Hopefully that is me free from that injury now and I can move on."
