Cade and Jennifer love the Near Southside Fort Worth neighborhood that they call home, and they are devoted to their community.
Cade is currently finishing his second term as Ryan Place Improvement Association’s President. During his tenure as President, Cade has effectively merged two neighborhood organizations into one, with a single vision and plan for the community. He also worked to change the elementary school boundary of Daggett Elementary so that all of Ryan Place is zoned to one elementary school – a task that the community worked on for many years. Cade’s current initiative as President is to improve the Daggett Park, which serves Fairmount neighborhood, Ryan Place neighborhood and Daggett Elementary. Cade has also helped expand the association’s donation base and create many new events for neighbors to become acquainted, including a yearly BBQ and a movie night in Triangle Park. Finally, Cade has successfully represented the neighborhood before the Zoning Commission and the City Council to protect the boundaries of Ryan Place.
In addition to the commitment to his neighborhood, Cade serves the Near Southside community by serving on the Hemphill Corridor Task Force – Development Committee which is implementing efforts to improve Hemphill Street. He has also served as a board member of the Fort Worth League of Neighborhoods and is a member of Fort Worth Downtown Rotary.

He was also appointed by his Fort Worth ISD Trustee to Fort Worth ISD’s District Advisory Committee, which citizen advisory committee that provides the district with citizen direction. Cade has also volunteered with Read Fort Worth, the community based initiative to raise the reading ability of Fort Worth ISD’s third graders.

Since 2014, Jennifer has served on the committee that puts on her neighborhood’s biggest fundraiser: the Candlelight Christmas in Ryan Place tour of homes. The Christmas Tour is a popular holiday event in the Metroplex that has raised money for her neighborhood for the past 35 years, but the years that Jennifer has served on the committee have raised the most money in the Christmas Tour’s history. Jennifer has a love of the arts (especially dance) and spent several years on the board of the Ballet Frontier of Texas during its infancy.
