by TexasGOPVote on August 22, 2012 at 10:31 AM
Alma Perez Jackson was born to Victor and Juanita Perez, in Laredo, Texas. When she was very young, the Perez family moved to San Antonio and raised Alma and her siblings on the southside. Her spanish speaking parents instilled a sense of pride, gratefulness and gratitude for her country and her state. Alma graduated from Harlandale High School where she was active in student council, speech & drama, and the marching band.
She married Christopher Jackson, a police officer and Vietnam Veteran in 1978 and they purchased a home in district 125, where they reside today. They raised three children, who graduated from John Marshall High School and are now married with families of their own. Alma loves being a grandmother to seven grandchildren ranging from ages 2-19.
Alma's work ethic was encouraged by her parents early on and she found employment at a neighborhood bakery while attending high school. Her work history includes administrative and commercial teller duties at Frost National Bank, an administrative position at Suburban Propane Oil & Gas and substitute teaching for NISD. Alma is a problem solver by nature and wanting to care for her young children herself and also contribute to the household income, she started a small business that enabled her to meet both challenges simultaneously. She successfully operated a day care business for more than 16 years. Her love of children grew from that business venture and she made positive influences and lasting relationships with many families within the community. A strong proponent of education, she decided to go back to school in 1995 and attended San Antonio College taking night classes while still providing for her family. She completed her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Alma has always been a proud conservative and a proud Texan, advocating her strong beliefs throughout her neighborhood and community through positions of leadership. She has resigned as precinct chair to run for State Representative and is a member of the Republican Business Women of Bexar County, Republican Women of Bexar County, Alamo Pachyderm Club, Thomas More Law Center, Alamo City Republican Women, and the NRA. She has lived in district 125 for 33 years, attends Grace Point Church and is also proud to be a CHL licensee.
