Jackson Albert Lee (born May 12, 1958), commonly known as JAL or Jal is a Sierran businessman and politician who served as the leader of the San Francisco chapter of the Royalist Party from 2000 until 2014. Born in the city of Sarangnha from the province of Orange, he studied to become a businessman and studied business both on his own in high school and later in college and eventually acquired employment at Cabrillo Technologies in 1978. He later moved to San Francisco City in 1988 and became the leader of the San Francisco branch of Cabrillo Technologies. Throughout the late 1990s and throughout the 2000s, Jackson Albert Lee became vocal in his criticism of the provincial government of waging a war on businessmen due to the province's regulations. He eventually joined the San Francisco Royalist Party and ran for its leadership in 2000 and won the leadership election of that year.

Throughout the 2000s, Jack Lee became a vocal opponent of the left-wing provincial government and ran for governor in 2010 on the Royalist ticket, but lost to his Democratic-Republican opponent Terry Scott. After Scott was elected governor and formed the Progressive Coalition, he lead the Royalists as the opposition party and secured a conservative coalition with the Royalist Party and San Francisco chapters of the Christian Democrats and Libertarian Party, but the coalition shrunk in the 2012 midterm elections. His leadership was eventually challenged in 2013 by Benjamin Grant and in an attempt to defeat him allowed a leadership election to be held on August 20, 2014. In the ensuing election, Jack Lee ran against both Grant, who was running on a New Right conservative platform, and Tucker Carlson, who ran on a paleoconservative ticket. Lee lost to Grant, but remained Minority Leader in the San Francisco Provincial Assembly until the 2015 election where he was succeeded by Benjamin Grant. Despite losing, Grant had negotiated with Lee in private and convinced him to remain in politics and was appointed Communications Director of the San Francisco Royalist Party a day later.

Since entering into politics, Jackson Lee has been known for financing conservative organizations and causes since the late 1980s and was one of the most well known and famous conservative figures in Sierra throughout the 2000s. Despite the defeat in the 2012 midterm elections, the Conservative Alliance created by Lee survived and would persist under Grant's leadership. He's known for his pro-big business, anti-regulation, and free market capitalist views and has denounced the politics and culture of San Francisco as a result.
