This article, and this entire issue of the AIChE Journal, are meant to honor Professor Roy Jackson, whose contributions to chemical engineering have been profound and exceptionally broad. It is often said of Roy Jackson that few, if any, scholars have so deep a command of the full range of highly varied subjects that comprise the chemical engineering discipline. A hardly complete description of Professor Jackson's wide-ranging academic journey was attempted, both geographic (Cambridge, London, Edinburgh, Houston, Pasadena, Princeton) and intellectual (fluidization, mechanics of granular flows, process optimization, chemical reaction network theory, diffusion and reaction in porous catalyst pellets). The contributions of friends and colleagues appearing elsewhere in this issue are a testament to the broad range of subjects in which Professor Jackson had interest. © 2017 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 63: 5239–5249, 2017.
