Jackie Valdés Campaign

About Jackie

Jacqueline Herr Valdés is a San Antonio native who has dedicated her professional career to improving juvenile justice. Growing up, Jackie and her two older brothers watched their parents and grandparents dedicate themselves to improving the community. As a child, Jackie volunteered at Circle T Riding Center, a therapeutic horseback riding center for children of all abilities in the San Antonio area, owned and operated by her grandparents.  As a young girl, Jackie remembers her own mother passing the Bar Exam and then working in the Bexar County District Attorney´s Office. Her mother would later be elected to serve Bexar County as a District Judge for the 186th District Court.   

Jackie had always been a teacher at heart.  After earning a BA in Mathematics at Trinity University, she had the opportunity to attend law school at St. Mary’s School of Law and graduated and passed the Texas Bar Exam in 2006.  Jackie began her career practicing criminal defense.  In 2008, Jackie was given the opportunity to work for the District Attorney’s Office assigned to the Juvenile Section.  This is where her passion for helping children and practicing law came together.  Jackie has worked in all three Bear County juvenile courts. This work experience has given her great insight into the issues that juveniles face in our community. 

Jackie and her husband, attorney Eduardo Valdés, have five children - Madeline, Paloma, Noah, Santiago, and Alex. The Valdés family is active in the community.  Jackie’s children are involved in soccer, gymnastics, and dance.  Jackie is an active member of her church, a Guadalupana, and the Danza Director for a mass honoring the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. 

Jackie is running for Judge of the 386th Juvenile District Court because she has the drive to help children turn their lives around and be successful members of our community. She understands the importance of identifying the needs of juvenile offenders and connecting these youth and their families with available resources, support, and supervision as quickly as possible.
