I Am A Texan all started with a fan page while two men were homesick for the promise land-Texas, during their deployment to Afghanistan. Jon Williams and Mike Cousineau were determined to express their innate “Texan-ness” while being deployed, and the Facebook page seemed like the perfect outlet. After a lengthy deployment Jon, along with his wife decided to expand I Am A Texan to the website it is today, with the dreams that it will be the go-to web destination for Texans everywhere.
There are many outlets promoting commerce, but very few that are Texans promoting Texans. IAmATexan.com was designed to address this exact issue. We developed the website in hopes that Texans and Texas businesses connect with one another in a friendly and dynamic fashion.
Jon’s love for Texas can be tracked back 6 generations – all the way to the Alamo. Coincidentally, his family’s military service and the love for their country go all the way back to the War of 1812. Serving five years in the United States Army himself, he is now working in defense out of El Paso, Texas. Jon holds a Bachelors degree from the University of North Texas and is currently pursuing his Masters from Texas A&M. Many Central Texans from around the Waco area are familiar with his voice, as he worked as a broadcaster in both radio and television at KXXV News 25 Waco, KPLE TBN Killeen, 88.9 KSUR and 89.9 KBDE Waco. Naturally, Jon was looking for his perfect Texas sweetheart, but God had different plans. After returning home from yet another deployment, fate stepped in and Jon met his wife at a Braves game in Atlanta, Georgia. It was not far after that they were married and Kasha was living the Texas life.
In a time of political and economic concern, America is thirsty for domestic commerce. A documentary Jon watched a few years ago stated that if every American would spend just $100 per year on American made goods, American jobs could be created for about three million people. I Am A Texan’s vision is that economic revolution can happen right here in Texas. With the help of fellow Texans our vision can come to life.
