Here’s the statement from the JMAA:

The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) reports receiving a verbal security threat today at its primary airport, Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International (JAN).

As is customary, this incident was reported immediately to the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which took the step of evacuating passengers and employees at JAN out of an abundance of caution. 

Further information may be available later from the TSA and other relevant agencies as this incident unfolds. 

According to FlightView, most flights in and out have been delayed.
