After marrying his former General Hospital costar, Lisa Vultaggio, in 2002, Jackson continued to find work. Although Jackson has never actually left Hollywood, his star remained dim for much of the 2000s, with a role in 2004's Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights and the Lifetime movie A Little Thing Called Murder in 2006. However, in 2010 he reprised his role as Lucky Spencer on General Hospital and in 2011 won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role. He return was only short-lived, as he departed at the end of 2011 to pursue other roles. He has not been linked to any recent projects, but that doesn't mean he is not keeping busy; he and his wife have three children together.
