Jason Wright first will describe himself as Carrie’s husband, Rylan and Abby’s Dad and lastly a small business owner. Jason is a native East Texan from Sulphur Springs where his family roots date back over 100 years. Jason and wife Carrie are both graduates of Stephen F. Austin State University and are active members of Green Acres Baptist Church.
Jason and Carrie hand-picked Tyler over six years ago as a place to put down roots, purchase a business and raise their daughters. Since that time Jason has established himself as a community leader and self described ambassador for Tyler, TX.
“I can honestly say I hand-picked Tyler. When I set out to leave the Fortune 500 world I specifically chose Tyler as my adopted hometown to purchase a business and raise a family. I can say without hesitation it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and God has truly blessed us through that decision.”

Jason is very active in issues of personal property rights through both the Federal legislature as well as the state legislature.
