Meet our Directors
Jason Derscheid was born and raised in a small farming community in south central Minnesota called Kenyon. He went on to study at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA where he completed a self-designed major titled Music Industry Studies. Jason has served the public in the nonprofit sector for 13 years beginning with the Boy Scouts of America in New Orleans and later in San Antonio, TX. His professional career then took him to Dallas, TX to work for the national office for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, later serving as the Executive Director for the North Texas and then South Texas affiliates. Jason’s most recent nonprofit work was back in San Antonio with the HeartGift Foundation flying in children from around the world in need of life saving open heart surgeries not available in their country.
Jason is an avid outdoorsman and sports fan. He enjoys backpacking, hiking, trail running, and fishing. It is rare for Jason to miss a New Orleans Saints football game. He is very excited that his 3 year old son Jaxon has embraced the Who Dat Nation as well.
A former journalist and PR contractor, Maureen tends the website, the CRRC Chronicle, the capital campaign, the Big Give SA, and other fundraising, while assisting with volunteer acquisition.

She rides 35-50 miles a week, and enjoys dancing with her husband – when they’re not visiting their grandchildren.

Governor of the Year for 2015.
