“Chase is the true epitome of the American Dream and a prime example that the cycle of poverty can be broken using conservative principles. He takes every opportunity he can to show others how to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps”
- Jessica Burgin
Chase grew up with an untraditional family. Coming from a single parent home of an elderly mother, it was easy to see the effects of the cycle of poverty on the family. And while that home was full of support and love, it was not an easy/comfortable upbringing. From an early age, Chase was working some of the most tasking manual labor jobs there are, not to save up for designer shoes or a souped-up car, but to keep the lights on and food on the table. He was able to see glimpses of the type of life he wanted as an adult, and the type of life he wanted for his children, but statistically the deck was stacked against him.
While some may have been jaded by these challenges, Chase was determined to claw his way out of poverty by hard work and perseverance. So, it was a shock to many that at the age of 23, after finally being able to earn a good living through industrial trades, he left behind the security of a high salary career and began to pursue a career focused on his passion for helping others overcome their own obstacles.
While obtaining his degree in Social Work from Lamar University, Chase met his wife Jessica. In 2021, the couple celebrated their 15thwedding anniversary. They currently raise their two sons, Colton (13) and Rider (9) in Bailey’s Prairie, instilling the Christian conservative values they were brought up with. Both Chase & Jessica are extremely active within Brazoria County volunteering for everything from coaching youth sports to hosting large charity events.
Upon graduation, Chase began his professional career at Youth & Family Counseling Services of Brazoria County. It is there where he began to gain experience working with individuals, families and organizations throughout the county. He was also afforded the opportunity to write grants, manage programs, and create new programs for populations he viewed as, “underserved”.
At the recommendation of several school counselors from across Brazoria County, Chase accepted the Program Manager role for a grant from the Governor’s office. Once again, his primary focus was assisting high-risk individuals in changing their actions and setting them on a path for success. Upon completion of the grant, he took on the role of Grant Coordinator & Workforce Training Specialist for Alvin Community College where he is currently the Director of Industrial Programs for the Workforce Development Department.
Chase has dedicated his entire professional career to assisting our community. He has spent over a decade working in every Justice of the Peace Court throughout the county assisting Judges and school districts with assessing families’ needs, making recommendations, and overseeing court orders. Through professional and volunteer avenues, Chase has served on numerous boards and charitable organizations. In many cases, he has assisted in the establishment of programs and organizations desperately needed in the county.
Chase is the true epitome of the American Dream and a prime example that the cycle of poverty can be broken using conservative principles. He takes every opportunity he can to show others how to “pull themselves up by their bootstraps.” That is why he has routinely been entrusted to work with law enforcement, families and children across the county. He is fair, genuine, and will protect and serve this great community as an elected official. Furthermore, he has the energy, passion, and experience the Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace office needs right now to win the upcoming election.

The Justice of the Peace Office is considered, “The People’s Court”. I’ve been a Conservative Social Worker serving the people of this county for almost 2 decades. I will return the office to a service-based courtroom with fairness and integrity being at the center of all services. I’m asking for your support to continue to serve this county in the role where I can make the most difference and effect the most lives.
