Biography Timeline


In 2009, Martínez was the top goalscorer in the top-tier Categoría Primera A in Colombia, with 18 goals. He also led Independiente Medellín to their fifth league title.

A Colombian international at the age of 22, he scored his first international goal on 5 September 2009 against Ecuador in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying match. On 7 June 2011, he was selected by Hernán Darío Gómez to be a part of the squad-of-23 for the 2011 Copa América.


On 7 July 2012, Martínez signed with Porto for €8.8 million. On 11 August, he played his first competitive match for the Portuguese team in the 2012 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira against Académica de Coimbra, also scoring his first goal. He scored in the 90th minute, which gave Porto their 19th victory of the tournament, and was named as the man of the match.


In the 2013 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira, Martínez scored the second goal in a 3–0 victory against Vitória de Guimarães at the Estádio Municipal de Aveiro, claiming his second Portuguese SuperCup in a row.

Martínez married Tatiana Castillo in March 2013, and have a son named Josue. He is a Christian. In September 2018, he released a seven-track Christian hip hop album titled No Temeré ("I Will Not Fear").


On 30 September 2014, Martínez came on as a substitute in a Champions League group stage match away to Shakhtar Donetsk, and the Ukrainian hosts gained a 2–0 lead. In the final minute and added time, he scored a penalty and then equalised for the final score of 2–2, which was dubbed "stunning" and "remarkable" by UEFA. In the quarter-final first leg on 15 April 2015, he scored the last goal in a 3–1 victory over Bayern Munich, also being fouled by goalkeeper Manuel Neuer for the penalty that Ricardo Quaresma ultimately converted for the opening goal. Martínez netted again in the second leg six days later, heading a consolation from Héctor Herrera's cross as Porto lost 1–6 in Munich, thus being eliminated from the competition.

On 2 June 2014, Martínez was named by coach José Pékerman in Colombia's 23-man squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. After a substitute appearance in the team's opening match win over Greece, Martínez was selected to start in the final group game against Japan, scoring twice in a 4–1 win.


Martínez had been reportedly linked with a move to Spanish side Atlético Madrid and, on 27 June 2015, he told the press the Madrid side deal was "done," also stating he was "excited about this move." It was later announced by Porto's official website that Atlético would pay the full release fee for Martínez, which would be worth €35 million. On 15 July, Atlético officially announced the transfer. He made his La Liga debut on 22 August, being substituted after an hour for Fernando Torres in a 1–0 home win over Las Palmas. A week later, Martínez came off the bench and scored his first goal for Atlético in a 3–0 victory over Sevilla. On 21 October, he scored his first UEFA Champions League goal for the club against FC Astana in a 4–0 win. On 12 November 2015, while playing for the Colombian national team against Chile, he suffered an ankle injury in the 85th minute and had to be taken off the field by a stretcher, which ruled him out for a month. He made his return on 30 December in a 0–2 away win against Rayo Vallecano, entering the pitch in the 70th minute and assisting Antoine Griezmann's goal in the last minute. He left the club a few weeks later because he struggled to adapt to Diego Simeone's playing style, as he was more accustomed to playing as a lone striker with Porto. The press labeled him "a flop" and some of his teammates said he wasn't confident, and club president Enrique Cerezo also said he wasn't at the level of the club.

Martínez was also chosen for the 2015 Copa América in Chile. The last time he was called up to the national team was for a 2018 World Cup qualification match against Chile on 12 November 2015, where he suffered an injury.


On 3 February 2016, Martínez was transferred to Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao with a fee of €42 million, a record for an Asian team. The record was broken two days later, when Alex Teixeira signed for Jiangsu Suning for £38.4 million (roughly €50 million). On 24 February 2016, he made his debut for Guangzhou Evergrande in the first match against Korean club Pohang Steelers. On 6 March 2016, Martínez scored in his Chinese Super League debut in an eventual 2–1 loss away at Chongqing Lifan. A week later, he scored and gave an assist in a 3–0 win against Changchun Yatai. On 15 April 2016, during a match against Henan Jianye, Martinez suffered an ankle injury and had to be substituted, which ruled him out for 2 months. He had ankle surgery a few days later, which ruled him out for a further 5 weeks. He returned to action on 9 August in a goalless draw against Beijing Guoan, playing the last 20 minutes of the match.

In October 2016, after playing 16 games, Martínez suffered an ankle injury that ruled him out for two years. He had another ankle surgery in July 2017. In March 2018, Guangzhou Evergrande terminated his contract and released him because of his injuries, and they thought there was no point of paying his salary if he wasn't going to play.


On 31 August 2018, Martínez returned to Portugal's top flight, joining Portimonense on a season-long loan. The deal was subsequently made permanent, but only until the end of 2019. He made his debut in a 3–2 victory against Vitoria de Guimaraes on 23 September, playing the last 17 minutes of the match. On 3 November 2018, he scored his first goal for the club, a penalty, which was also the club's only goal that game in a 1–1 draw against Belenenses. A month later, he scored a double in a 3-1 win against Vitoria Setubal. On 11 May 2019, he scored in the 88th minute against Maritimo to give Portimonense a 3–2 win. In October 2019, Jackson scored his first goal for the club in the Taça de Portugal against Académica de Coimbra, which Portimonense lost 2–1.


In January 2020, however, he signed a new contract with the Portuguese club, keeping him until 2022. Still troubled by his chronic ankle injuries, Martínez left Portimonense in August 2020, stating that he wanted to return to Independiente Medellín.
