A Texas native, Jaime has lived in or visited most of the U.S. and enjoys the outdoors and all of its beauty. He started his professional career in the Abilene area in 2016 and has since been recognized regionally for his consistent growth in membership with a 5% increase in 2017 and 12% in 2018. His love of the Boy Scouts of America as a youth has rubbed off on his two children, Jenna “Bug” and Bishop, who are both proud young Scouters. His service to others continues in his personal life where he has been a volunteer firefighter and trained emergency medical responder. A “cheerful spirit, even in the midst of irksome tasks and weighty responsibilities” has guided him most of his life. You just can’t miss his smile.

I am a native Midlander, born and raised there. I graduated from Lee High School, attended some classes at Midland College while I was on the Midland Fire Department. I was a Captain/Paramedic upon my departure.
I am single, have 6 children , and have developed many skills over the years of which I think will help me at BTSR.
I have been around horses off and on most of my life. I was a much better rider years ago, but have become a little more top heavy! I love the outdoors and really enjoy it here at BTSR. I am honored for the opportunity to make the Ranch a very special place for the many young people that will visit. I am looking forward to meeting many Staff members in the future, developing new friendships, and I will be depending on their skills and assistance. BTSR is a wonderful place for me to hang my hat, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to touch as many lives as I can.
