Jan Rees-Jones is a life-long resident of Dallas and a community leader known for her service to others. Jan and her husband, Trevor, founder of Chief Oil & Gas, founded The Rees-Jones Foundation in 2006 to complete their personal mission of “serving God by serving others” by providing opportunities for the disadvantaged and encouraging the growth and well-being of the North Texas community.
The foundation has also distributed millions of dollars to help children suffering from abuse and neglect, offer relief to those facing mental health challenges, provide young people with opportunities for enrichment and character development, and promote the humane treatment of animals. Jan’s passion for the welfare of animals led to her service with the SPCA of Texas, where the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center is named in her honor as well as being named an honorary member of the Board of Directors. Her passion for women’s and children’s rights is evident with the Advisory Council of the George W. Bush Institute’s Women’s Initiative, which works to improve conditions for women and children in countries where basic human rights are often denied.
Jan is a graduate of Texas Tech University and an active member of Highland Park Presbyterian Women’s Ministry. She and Trevor are the proud parents of two boys, Trevor R. and David, both Texas Christian University graduates, where Jan received the Honorary Alumni Award for her support of the university and its programs.
