Jessica Beemer
Chief of Staff

Jessica Beemer is no stranger to the Houston area, as she was raised just up the road in Atascocita. After graduating from Humble High School, Jessica headed west to attend the University of Texas at San Antonio. She is now the proud recipient of not one, but two degrees from UTSA – her first, a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and her second, a Master’s degree in Public Administration.

During her time at UTSA she took on multiple leadership roles. She served as the Executive Vice President of Sigma Kappa Sorority; the President of the UTSA Panhellenic Conference and founded the organization “Be A Responsible Roadrunner”. All of which led to her eventual coronation as Ms. UTSA 2008.

During graduate school, Jessica was accepted into the Archer Fellowship Program in Washington, DC where she attended classes at University of Texas System in DC, all while interning for National Republican Congressional Committee. She was fully immersed in to the Capitol Hill lifestyle, but chose to return to Texas to complete her degree program.

Once back in classes at UTSA, Jessica was hired by the San Antonio Area Foundation’s Grants and Programs Department to work with animal welfare. Upon graduation, Jessica accepted a position as the South Texas Field Director for Lt. Governor David Dewhurst.

While she loved working in South Texas, Jessica desired to return home to Houston. After almost eight years in San Antonio, she is looking forward to again exploring the City of Houston, creating relationships with the residents of City Council District E
