Irene Armendariz Jackson

Irene ArmendarizJackson 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.
