WHY JASON WORKS IN GOVERNMENT RELATIONS
“As a young father in a bedroom community in Dallas, Texas, I ran for office to ensure that my neighbors had three things: high-wage jobs, excellent public schools, and safe neighborhoods. My service as a member of the Texas Legislature was dedicated to finding solutions to complex problems that we faced.
During my service to Texas, I was known as a problem solver, someone who could craft solutions to complex problems."
HOW JASON WINS
Jason is a former member of the Texas legislature. He has had a multifaceted career in corporate governance, regulatory compliance, and governmental relations. He started his political career in 2012 as the first Hispanic to represent for Texas House District 114. During his time of service, Jason passed more legislation than any member of his class.
His background as a financially trained business advisor and corporate strategist has allowed him to understand the nuances of many sectors such as energy and renewables, telecommunications, technology, and healthcare. Due to his extensive knowledge of the corporate world, the Speaker of the House appointed him to the important Special Select Committees on Small Business and Economic Incentives, and Redistricting. Additionally, Jason served on the Environmental Regulation Committee, the Business and Industry Committee, and the Economic Development Committee, where he addressed the state’s economic development, events, and emerging growth funds.
One of Jason’s biggest accomplishments is the Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation, which he founded in 2019. This non-profit, non-partisan foundation is dedicated to educational research to better understand the cultural and political trends of Texas’ largest ethnic minority. The Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation has raised over a million dollars and has been engaged by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Texas 2036, the Philanthropy Advocates, and the Meadows Foundation, among many others, to conduct research relating to the Hispanic community in Texas.
