Meet Jon Mark

Lawyer, Actor, Writer

I was born in Tyler while my father was Pastor of the Baptist Church in Bullard, Texas.  I come from the hard scrabble working class folk of Southeast Texas.  When I was four my parents became missionaries, and I spent my childhood climbing coconut trees, eating sugarcane from the fields, and wearing shoes only when required while growing up in Trinidad & Tobago in the West Indies.   My high school years were spent on the border in El Paso, Texas.  There I fell in love with West Texas, New Mexico, the mountains and the Trans-Pecos.  I graduated from Baylor University (1988) and St. Mary’s Law School in San Antonio (1992).

While at Baylor I met and married Claire Hirschfelt, of San Angelo—the best decision I ever made.  After law school, I accepted my first job in San Angelo and haven't looked back since.  We  brought our two children into the world in West Texas.
