About JR

I grew up in Pasadena, graduating from Sam Rayburn High.

I then attended San Jacinto College for my first two years, received my Bachelors from SMU and my Master’s from the University of Houston Clear Lake.

I have my CPA license, and have been in banking and investments for more than 30 years.

At Moody Bank as CFO, I prepared budgets during our growth from $300 million to almost a billion dollars in assets, and the number of branches increased from four to thirty-one. I have supervised several hundred employees. I managed the $600 million bond portfolio for the bank as well. I am currently a licensed Texas Realtor and agent at Qualified Properties on Vista Rd.

As Board of Trustee for San Jacinto College (thank you for electing, and re-electing me), it has been my pleasure to be part of two bond issues totaling $720 million to build and expand the education options for the three campuses and 30,000 students who are on their way to becoming taxpayers and productive members of our community. Thank you for your trust and confidence by approving both of these bond issues. It is immensely rewarding to shake hands with our graduating students and see sparkle in their eyes as they plan for the future.

I have been involved in the Pasadena Chamber, Rodeo, Heart Association, Neighborhood Center, Rotary and many other Community organizations during the years as committee member, officer, and or board member.

I would like to hear your thoughts on how we can make our community even better than it already is!
