Jason Spangler

Austin (Past President, Past Treasurer)

Jason Spangler is CTO of a software startup and has worked on several hit video games in technical leadership positions. 

He and his wife, Lisa, are software engineers by trade, but their hearts are in nature and conservation. They have been very involved in conservation and nature organizations in Texas, including NPAT and the Native Plant Society of Texas, and have helped protect prairies in Texas. 

Under Mr. Spangler’s leadership as President and Treasurer of NPAT he wrote successful grant applications that allowed NPAT to grow from an all-volunteer organization to hiring our first staff and completing the bulk of the tallgrass prairie county surveys.
