Mike Jackson is a recurring fictional character in the early novels by British comic writer P. G. Wodehouse, being a good friend of Psmith. He appears in all the Psmith books.

Mike is a solid, reliable character with a strong sense of fair play, but an appetite for excitement and a stubbornness that often leads him into trouble. He is a keen and talented cricketer, and comes from a cricketing family (his elder brothers have all distinguished themselves), and as we follow Mike's life he himself achieves considerable cricketing success. However, as Wodehouse's writing developed away from the school stories of his early period, cricket becomes a less important aspect of the tales, as does Mike himself. ---From Wikipedia

In Mike, Wodehouse introduces the characters Mike Jackson and Psmith, who are featured in several of Wodehouse's later works. It shows how the two characters first meet as teenagers at boarding school. As Psmith doesn't appear until about halfway through this book, it was later released as two separate books, Mike at Wrykyn and Mike and Psmith.
