Representative Jason Isaac   

Member PhotoRep. Jason Isaac is a fourth generation Texan who resides in Hays County with his wife, Carrie, and their two boys.
Since his election in 2010, Rep. Isaac has proven to be a knowledgeable and effective legislator. He has passed legislation to assist veterans, protect Second Amendment rights, and strengthen election integrity. He’s dedicated to providing Texans with great schools, an efficient transportation system, and reliable water infrastructure. As a father of two children who attend
public school in Dripping Springs and an advocate for Texas State University, Rep. Isaac is committed to helping our education system operate more efficiently and effectively. With nearly two decades of experience in the trucking industry, he knows that transportation is an essential part of a successful economy. He is unwavering in his commitment to promote responsible spending through lower taxes and has made good on his promise to work to limit the size and scope of government. He understands that a smaller government increases individual freedom, and the Texas Conservative Coalition has named him a “Courageous Conservative” for both sessions that he has served in the Legislature. He also founded the Hill Country Caucus, an organization made up of legislators who are dedicated to promoting and preserving the unique features and resources of the Hill Country.
Rep. Isaac is honored to work for the residents of Hays and Blanco counties.
