From a blue-collar home in rural Texas to representing one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, Jared Patterson found purpose during the tragic events of 9/11 and has since dedicated himself to a life of service to his community and to his profession.
A proud graduate of Texas A&M University, Jared was first elected to Texas House District 106, which covers north-central and eastern Denton County, in 2018. He is a full-spectrum conservative who champions fiscal responsibility, individual liberty, life, and the fierce spirit of independence which has made Texas the greatest state in the nation.
During his time in the Legislature, his primary focus has been on border security funding, property tax reform, protecting first responders, securing fundamental rights, and safeguarding pets. Jared was an author on and helped pass legacy conservative bills in 2021 such as Constitutional Carry and the Texas Heartbeat Act – Jared’s proudest accomplishment since joining the Texas House.
Speaker Dade Phelan appointed Jared to serve on the House Committees on Business & Industry, Homeland Security & Public Safety, and the prestigious Calendars Committee. Jared is a member of the Texas House Republican Caucus (THRC), serving the THRC as both a member of the Policy Committee and a Deputy Floor Leader. Jared is a member of the Texas House Criminal Justice Reform Caucus, the Texas Cybersecurity Council and is a board member of the Texas Conservative Coalition.
Professionally, Jared is the Director of Energy Services at Rapid Power Management, a retail electric brokerage firm headquartered in Carrollton. Jared, his wife Leslie, their three children and their family dog reside in Frisco. The Pattersons are members of First Baptist Church of Frisco.
