Have you seen the new Russell Wilson commercials for Alaska Airlines?

The newest Alaska Airlines commercials feature Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. The theme is “Alaska Airlines Company Retreat,” a camp where employees are pushed to greatness by Wilson, who plays a role that’s part counselor, part drill sergeant, part guru.

The three commercials feature real Alaska and Horizon employees from around the country, including Captain Erika Jackman.

Erika Walker Jackman is a graduate of Shorewood High School Class of 1996 and her mother is Sue Walker, recently retired Superintendent of Shoreline Schools.

A check airman is a person who is qualified to conduct flight checks in an aircraft, in a flight simulator, or in a flight training device for a particular type aircraft.
