Jason Miyares and his family are an example of how American is truly the land of opportunity.
Jason’s story begins with his mother Miriam Maria Miyares, who fled communist Cuba in 1965 with only the clothes on her back. She legally immigrated to the United States and instilled in her three sons a passionate love of freedom and democracy. Jason Miyares grew up in Virginia Beach, attended local public schools through high school, received his undergraduate degree from James Madison University and attended law school at the College of William & Mary.
Jason proudly served the people of Virginia Beach as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney. He worked to keep violent offenders off our street – he successfully prosecuted over six hundred criminals and had a conviction rate of ninety percent. After his tenure in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office, Jason worked with Congress Scott Rigell as a senior advisor and counselor for the last five years.
Jason Miyares is the Republican nominee for the House of Delegates in the 82nd District in Virginia Beach. His primary goal is to make Hampton Roads the number one place in the nation for entrepreneurs to create jobs and expand their businesses. Jason will pursue policies that support our local job creators instead of punishing them, promote a leaner, more effective regulatory climate, and shield our business owners from frivolous lawsuits.
As a former prosecutor, Jason is passionate about keeping our neighborhoods safe. Virginia’s law enforcement professionals are among the best in the country. If elected, Jason will continuously fight to ensure the police have the tools and training they need to do their jobs.
Jason and his wife, Page Atkinson Miyares, reside in the Great Neck area of Virginia Beach. Together with their three beautiful daughters, Gabriella, Elaina and Sophia, they attend Galilee Episcopal Church, where Jason is involved in men’s ministry.
