Elect Jason Simon

My name is Jason Simon. I currently live at 2282 Misty Ridge Drive.  I am married to my beautiful wife Heather Jones Simon and we are blessed to have two wonderful children.  Braden and Brooke are both elementary age children attending schools in our community.  

I have been a resident of Lenoir City my entire life.  I graduated from Lenoir City High School and attended Roane State and Cleveland State Community College. I am a member of Fellowship Baptist Church in Lenoir City.

Outside of work and family, I am an avid outdoorsman.  I have a passion for spending time outdoors and love sharing those experiences with my children.

At the end of the day, family time is a priority.  Time spent with my wife and children is what builds family memories for years to come and that is what is important to me.

Why I am Running…

Now that I am the parent of two elementary school age children, it puts things into perspective on how important decisions that our leaders make can affect our children’s futures as they prepare for the next level of their education. 

I want to be a part of the decisions made for the children in our school system because their success and education should be the single most important goal.  In order to provide our children with the best education we have to take care of our teachers and administrators and provide them with the best resources available.  Teachers are a significant part of the equation and if I am elected I will make sure that the teachers have my full attention and support.  Please allow me the honor of becoming YOUR school board representative.
