Foundation Vision:

I get great pleasure in watching young adults grow personally and professionally; knowing I am part of this foundation, helping individuals achieve their dreams fills my heart with joy. The Texas Jaycee Foundation has helped so many young adults attend college or trade school who may not have been able to without the scholarship they were awarded.  The Foundation is a non-profit organization that solely relies on donations. It would be amazing to watch the Foundation flourish and to be able to award twice as many scholarships and perhaps larger than those currently granted to students.

“My wife Vicki and I have four great kids Ashley, Patrick, Cameron, and Alex. We are first-time grandparents by my daughter Ashley and her husband Zack to a wonderful little fellow, Mason Brian Lundy”.

“My son Patrick and I are partners in a company called “Matcha Organics”. Patrick approached me about beginning a business selling powdered tea leaf’s called Matcha Green Tea. Tuesday, October 28th in 2014 we sold our first bag of tea. Our product on and Amazon is now sold in the United States, Canada and five European countries. We have expanded our line to include Cooking Grade to Ceremonial Grade Matcha in a variety of package sizes from both Japan and China.”

“I joined the Brownwood Jaycees because someone asked. I felt privileged that someone thought enough of me to ask me to join their club. The acquaintances, friends, brothers, and sisters I have been honored to get to know have made a profound difference in my life. At Santa Domingo during an Area C World Jaycee Conference, my wife and I met a young lady that was explaining how the Jaycees saved her life. How Manuel Noriega would send his military to drag poor people out of their homes to be beaten in the street to maintain fear and control. Jaycees in Panama are considered upper class which Noriega did not want to provoke. This girl was from a poor family and in the middle of the night was drug out of her home into the street. She was about to be beaten until they spotted the Jaycees lapel pin and immediately brushed her off, begged her forgiveness for fear of being beaten themselves and rushed off. She was sponsored by her employer as their representative because the dues were so expensive. This was an eye-opening experience my wife and I that we would always remember because depending on your commitment to your community, your involvement can literally be a life changing experience.”
