Irene in your community
The American Dream
Irene Armendariz Jackson is a lifelong El Paso resident with deep roots in both El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. Born to Ernesto and Graciela Armendariz, Mexican immigrants who became naturalized Citizens of the United States, Irene learned from them the values of faith, strong family ties and hard work. Her father was employed in drywall construction and her mother earned both a Bachelor's degree and Masters in Social Work, dedicating her career to working in the Pediatrics Department at Texas Tech Medical Center. The Armendariz family did not expect anyone to give them a handout; they believed in working to create their own opportunities.
Irene and her husband, Bill, have been married for twenty-six years. Bill is a veteran of the United States Navy and has been with the United States Border Patrol for 25 years, serving as a Patrol Agent and as Chaplain. They have three beautiful daughters and three delightful grandchildren. As a wife, mother, and grandmother, Irene is committed to promoting strong family and moral values. Irene learned early in life the lengths parents will go to give the next generation a greater opportunity to live the American Dream, a lesson that has impacted her own family.
Irene attended public schools in El Paso and graduated from Burges High School. She received an undergraduate degree in Business Management from Howard Payne University, and has earned a Master’s Degree in Government with a concentration in Law and Public Policy from Regent University.
In 2018 Irene served as the Constituency Leader and Domestic Policy Advisor, while also helping with Communications and Strategic Planning for the Republican Candidate in the District 16 campaign.
As a realtor and small business owner, Irene understands the value of economic freedom for both employees and employers. Irene’s experience on both sides of the paycheck has made her uniquely qualified to advocate for lower taxes, deregulation, and protecting the American Dream.
Irene has been involved with the Pro-Life community as an advocate and activist, dedicating her time and financial resources. Alongside her husband she has provided emotional support and needed assistance to Border Patrol Agents in times of crisis; led parent support groups for youth sports; served at the Rescue Mission; led fundraising efforts for several community and youth sports groups, including St. Paul’s Weekday Ministries. Irene also served as Parent Representative to the School Board for St. Paul’s Weekday Ministries which helped generations of El Pasoans with quality care and education. In the faith community she has led Children’s Ministries, including teaching, being the Program Manager and Counselor. She has vested thousands of volunteer hours in children’s activities and pro-life activities.
Irene is currently working with organizations that address human trafficking, which victimizes and preys on women and children, the most vulnerable among us. She is enthusiastically building partnerships between government and the faith community and providing much needed resources for those struggling during these unprecedented times in our community.
