Born in Houston, Texas, Jai has called Texas home for most of his life. He and his wife, Katie, moved to Pearland 16 years ago.

He currently provides insurance consulting for a wide range of industries with varying employee populations.
Because Jai has a heart for service, he has been committed to giving back to the community that he loves and calls home by serving on the Houston Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone Board along with several other education, health and child welfare boards including: AlvinISD Zoning Board, Southwest Charter Schools, The Christus Foundation, and Child Advocates. He’s worked with the local Pearland Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in the aftermath of Hurricane IKE providing Point of Dispense support and resource distribution. Keep Pearland Beautiful Board and Pearland CPAC (Comprehensive Planning Advisory Committee) CPAC is tasked with providing community input on the growth trajectory for the next 20 years for the Pearland Community. After serving as the Texas Executive Director of national non-profit organization fighting human trafficking, Jai decided to found his own non-profit fighting for marginalized communities to provide options, not handouts. www.TXmpact.org.
Jai has dedicated his free time to ensuring the success of his neighborhood’s annual National Night Out event, planning and organizing it for the past several years now. National Night Out is a national community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships. He’s also a regular volunteer for the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program in Alvin I.S.D.
