Jason Rainey was a badass former marine, who grew up in Houston, Texas. In college, he met his wife, fell madly in love, and moved back to her hometown to make her happy. It was important to her to raise their future children in the safety of a small town. While she was pregnant with their first child, there was a car accident and she died. He ended up liking small-town life far more than he thought he would and ended up staying instead of moving back to the big city.
When they first arrived at the area, he got hired on as a junior deputy with the sheriff’s department and over the years worked his way up until one day when the county sheriff retired, he recommended Jason as a replacement, and with his support, Jason ran and won the election.
The Sherriff’s department has jurisdiction over the entire county, but because Big Oak is so well run they never have a reason to actually come into town and deal with any issues unless they are called upon and specifically asked to help. But Jason recently bought a large piece of land south of town where he had been building his dream home.
We first meet Jason Rainey in Love Ever After when he meets his love interest, Wendy, a geologist who works with Hannah Page.
