Jarrod Ousley is a small business owner and education advocate representing the 24th House District in Kansas. The 24th District is comprised of the city of Merriam and parts of Mission and Overland Park.
Representative Ousley was selected by the precinct committee men and women of his district to replace Representative Emily Perry after she resigned from the legislature in October of 2014. Ousley was re-elected in his district in November, receiving over 60% of the vote.
Jarrod grew up in Johnson County, attending Shawnee Mission public schools. Ousley has lived in Merriam for seven years with his wife Heather and their three children. He has owned and operated a small paint contracting company for the last thirteen years. Jarrod and Heather have been leading advocates to protect the public education system in Kansas.
Ousley is not a career politician, he is a father, husband and business owner dedicated to representing his neighbors and district.
Ousley plans to focus on issues that matter to working families: good schools, safe neighborhoods, and increasing opportunities for small business owners.
