Stanisław Jackowski was born in 1887 to Polish parents in Warsaw, in the part of Poland then ruled by the Russian Empire following the partitions of Poland.

Jackowski completed his art studies before the First World War in Kraków, the Austrian-ruled part of Poland, and throughout the Interwar period lived and worked in Warsaw.  He was a member, and for many years president, of the Rzeźba (Sculpture) Society.

Jackowski died in 1951 in Katowice, Poland.

In 1912 Jackowski designed the Powązki Cemetery tomb of his uncle, novelist Bolesław Prus.  The monument bears on three sides, respectively, the writer's actual name Aleksander Głowacki, his dates of birth and death, and his pen name Bolesław Prus. On the fourth side is the inscription "Serce serc" ("Heart of hearts"), borrowed from the Latin inscription "Cor cordium" on the tomb of English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley in Rome's Protestant Cemetery; and below this inscription is the figure of a little girl embracing Prus' tomb — a figure emblematic of Prus' well-known empathy and affection for children.

Jackowski created over a dozen monuments, including those of Tadeusz Kościuszko and Jan Kiliński in Warsaw.

He also designed many portraits in marble and bronze, including the 1936 memorial to Bolesław Prus in Warsaw's Holy Cross Church.  Set into the marble plaque is a bronze bas-relief profile of Prus, his actual and pen names, dates of birth and death, and the inscription, "great writer and teacher of the nation."

Jackowski also produced a series of sculptures, Tańcerka (Dancer), one of which, created in 1927, stands in Warsaw's Skaryszewski Park.
