On Tuesday, midfielder Jonathan Worthington put pen-to-paper on a two-year extension with The Terriers, despite going under the knife for a hernia operation that morning.
Jackson followed that up by signing three teenage talents at the club, as Andy Holdsworth, Anthony Lloyd and David Mirfin received two-year deals that begin from the end of this season.
All three are former trainees and were given year-long deals at the beginning of the current campaign before becoming first team regulars under Jackson this term.
"Worthy's done excellently for us this season and fully deserves his contract extension," Jackson told the club's official website.
"He's shown us all what a key member of the team he is and what potential he has.
"I am really pleased to be giving all three of them (youngsters) contracts until the 2005/06 season.
"They deserve it because they have worked hard for me since I came to the club."
Jackson also revealed that he has started contract negotiations with young defender Nathan Clarke about extending his deal beyond the end of this season.
