Jess Fields is a father, husband, Christian, and Constitutional conservative dedicated to protecting our God-given rights to life, liberty, and property.
Jess attended Texas A&M University, where he met his future wife, Courtney, in the College Republicans and started a small retail business at the age of 19, Texas Avenue Cigars. At 22, Jess was elected as a College Station City Councilman, where he fought for lower taxes, less spending and debt, and more freedom for small businesses and homeowners.
Jess’ hard work and leadership brought real reforms to College Station, like putting every check the city spent online. He led the effort to reduce the “utility tax,” which saved utilities customers approximately $4 million per year in hidden taxation. He tirelessly fought against wasteful spending and for lower property taxes. These efforts earned him the “most conservative” label from the Bryan-College Station Eagle.
As a grassroots activist, Jess has spent thousands of hours volunteering for Republican causes in the Brazos Valley: as a precinct chair, the chair of several local party committees, and as both an alternate and a national delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2008 and 2012.
For nearly two years, he worked for the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation, a free market think tank, to bring conservative ideas to local communities across Texas and the state. His writings have appeared in such publications as the Dallas Morning News, the San Antonio Express-News, the Austin American-Statesman, and the Houston Chronicle. He currently works as a business consultant.
Jess and Courtney have a daughter named Lacey.
