Jason Reese was raised as the only child of a single father who moved to a small town, enduring a long commute so Jason could attend a good school. Jason made it through the University of Oklahoma on part-time jobs and scholarships before leaving for Notre Dame Law School. While at Notre Dame, the attacks of September 11 occurred. Answering the call of duty, Jason enlisted in the U.S. Navy Reserve. While still in the Navy, Jason transferred back to OU to marry Jessica and settle in Oklahoma City.
After the Republican Party gained control of the Oklahoma House of Representatives for the first time in over eighty years, Jason was offered a position at the House conducting legal research and drafting legislation. In 2006, he left state government and entered the private sector. For the past eleven years, Jason has represented and advised Oklahoma businesses, especially in the field of employment law. His expertise in employment law was recognized by the Governor when he was appointed to the Merit Protection Commission, which oversees the employment decisions and policies of state agencies.
Jason and Jessica live in Quail Creek with their four children. The Reeses attend Christ the King, where all but baby Charlotte attend school as well. Jason is active in the community, serving as an usher for his church and on the board of the Quail Creek Homeowners Association. He is a member of Oklahoma City Rotary Club 29 and the Downtown Club. The service he finds the most fulfilling is as a member of the Board of Cristo Rey Catholic High School, a startup school tailored to fit the needs of underprivileged teens who otherwise would lack the opportunity to make a better life.
