If the day after a Democratic win in a competitive district in Texas, Republicans are shaking their heads and asking, "what happened", it’s probably because Jay Jackson was at the helm of a first-class turnout and field operation. Jay brings fresh energy, experience, and perspective to the kinds of grassroots voter contact we implement at AMM.
Jay has a long record running field programs across the state of Texas, with experience turning out voters in Tarrant County – a long time Republican stronghold that has shifted Democratic under the persuasion and turnout programs Jay has helmed in the last three cycles. Jay’s ability to target and turn out Democratic voters was critical to Beto O’Rourke winning Tarrant County in 2018, and Joe Biden winning the county in 2020.
Jay knows that Tarrant can be a bellwether for new Democratic gains, and we’re counting on his expertise to engage and turnout Democratic voters in battleground areas.
Jay understands how to elect strong Democrats and how to help them govern. He has worked with Congressman Marc Veasey and served as Chief of Staff for Tarrant County Commissioner Devan Allen after helping her win the first Tarrant County Democratic County Commission upset in 30 years.
A Fort Worth native, Jay’s commitment to service goes beyond partisan politics – he serves on the boards of Campfire First, United Way of Tarrant County, and Clayton Youth Enrichment. He and his wife, Katie, A Mansfield public school teacher and their frisky pup, Sheba, live in Fort Worth and are an active part of the music and arts scene in Fort Worth. Sheba plays the bass.
