Early life and education
Jackley was raised in Sturgis, South Dakota, and graduated cum laude from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in 1992 with his BS in electrical engineering. He received his JD from the University of South Dakota School of Law in 1995.
From 1995 through 1997, Jackley served as a judicial law clerk for the then-former Chief Judge Richard Howard Battey of the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota. Jackley joined the Rapid City law firm of Gunderson, Palmer, Nelson, and Ashmore. As a partner, his practice areas focused on construction & engineering law and real property disputes. At that time, he also served as a Special Assistant Attorney General for South Dakota prosecuting controlled substance felonies.

In 2006, Jackley was recommended by U.S. Senator John Thune to replaced James E. McMahon and later nominated by President George W. Bush to be United States Attorney for the District of South Dakota. Later in 2006, Jackley was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Marty was named the South Dakota Prosecutor of the Year in 2008 from the South Dakota State’s Attorneys Association. Jackley was succeeded as U.S. Attorney by Brendan Johnson.
Attorney General of South Dakota (2009-2019)
Jackley received the Justice Management Institute Award for Excellence.
President of National Association of Attorneys General
Jackley was the first South Dakota Attorney General elected President of the National Association of Attorneys General and the theme of his tenure was "Policing in the 21st Century". 
South Dakota v. Wayfair
The state of South Dakota was represented at oral arguments by Jackley, and Deputy Solicitor General Malcolm L. Stewart.
The Court agreed to hear the case in January 2018, with arguments heard on April 17, 2018 and a ruling expected by June at the end of the current term. The court held by a 5-4 majority that states may charge tax on purchases made from out-of-state sellers, even if the seller does not have a physical presence in the taxing state. The decision overturned Quill Corp. v. North Dakota (1992), which had held that the Dormant Commerce Clause barred states from compelling retailers to collect sales or use taxes in connection with mail order or Internet sales made to their residents unless those retailers have a physical presence in the taxing state.
Life after Attorney General
Marty rejoined the firm of Gunderson, Palmer, Nelson and Ashmore and opened up a law office in Pierre, South Dakota. 
Marty and his wife Angela live in Pierre, South Dakota with their two children, Michael and Isabella. Marty also presently serves as Chairman of the Conference of Western Attorneys General and Vice-Chairman of the National Association of Attorneys General.
