Biography

Jessica González is currently serving her first term as State Representative for District 104.

Throughout her short time in the Texas House of Representatives she has dedicated her time to reforming our criminal justice system, expanding voting rights, and fighting for affordable housing.

Jessica earned her bachelor of arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice from The University of Texas at Arlington and later attended Western Michigan University-Cooley School of Law, where she held top student leadership positions, clerked at the Voting Rights Section of the Civil Rights Division for the U.S. Department of Justice, and graduated at the top of her class.

In 2011, Jessica was selected as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Law Graduate Fellow in Washington, D.C. She served as a Legislative Assistant at the U.S. House of Representatives handling an extensive policy portfolio. She was also selected as a White House intern where she worked extensively on immigration-related issues.

Jessica’s white paper titled “New State Voting Laws: A Barrier to the Latino Vote?” earned her a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for her dedication to address current public policy concerns. Jessica’s commitment to protect the rights of voters led to her service as the Nevada Voter Protection Director for President Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012.

Today, Jessica practices personal injury at her law firm, Gandara & González, PLLC, located in District 104. Throughout her life, Jessica has remained conscious of her family’s courage and determination; she attributes her ambition, strong work ethic and values to her parents. As the 86th legislative session approaches, Representative González plans to use her diverse educational, professional, and policy experience to bring positive change to House District 104.
