Jessica Mason was born and raised in South Dallas. Having grown up in poverty, Jessica struggled to afford college, but chose to enlist in the US Navy to help pay for college. After five years serving in the US Navy as a medic, she became deeply familiar with the mental health challenges facing veterans particularly those who served in combat zones. Jessica is running for Congress because she believes TX-30 needs policies that are designed for the success of working people. That starts with new leadership that values all of our humanness and understands our struggles.
