Although not a native Texan, Jason got here as fast as he could and eventually married one, which is the next best thing.

After graduating from Texas A&M University in 1996, he worked in a variety of roles for a major U.S. financial institution in San Antonio for 8 years.  Having a moment of clarity during an early mid-life crisis, Jason decided to leave the financial world for law school, graduating from St. Mary’s School of Law in 2007.

While at St. Mary’s, Jason had internships with the Child Support Division of the Texas Attorney General’s Office and a major national insurance exchange, and clerked with the Texas Fourth Court of Appeals.  In his final year in law school, he served on the Editorial Board of the St. Mary’s Law Journal and had his journal comment – “Spam (Supremacy Clause, Public Forms, and Mailings): The Fifth Circuit’s Interpretation of the CAN-SPAM Act in White Buffalo v. University of Texas” (38 St. Mary’s L.J. 553) published.

Upon graduation from law school, Jason began his practice representing landowners in oil and gas disputes along the Texas border region around Laredo.  From there, he worked as an oil and gas title examiner for firms in the San Antonio and Houston areas, with most of his work being focused on the Barnett Shale, Eagle Ford Shale, and Permian Basin. Jason was Board Certified in Oil, Gas, and Mineral Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in 2012. Prior to joining Mazurek and Holliday, Jason worked in the Houston office of a national law firm practicing transactional oil and gas law.

Jason enjoys spending his spare time at home with the world’s most spoiled cat, Ivy, and his wife, Jennifer. Jennifer, a proud graduate of the University of Texas, works in San Antonio as a licensed Audiologist. As such, she has performed the hearing tests that prove that when Jason watches Aggie football, he doesn’t “not hear” her so much as he “ignores” her.
