Jason Bearden Bio


Jason Bearden is a candidate for Dist 6 Manatee County Commissioner, the seat currently held by Carol Whitmore. An accomplished entrepreneur, national non-profit leader, speaker and Iraqi combat veteran, Jason served in the United States Marine Corps for over eight years and completed his service as a Marine Corps Scout Sniper Team Leader and Staff Sergeant (E-6). Jason also holds an Executive MBA from the University of South Florida. 


Jason’s father is a thirty year career Marine and his mother is an immigrant. Because of his parents’ experiences and Jason’s upbringing, he developed a profound appreciation for America, an unwavering belief in our founding principles and a dedication to serve that kindled in him. After leaving active duty, Jason started his family and found his permanent home in Florida where he has launched several successful businesses and collaborated with key individuals to start and foster a national Christian business organization. 


Jason and his wife, Katie, are the proud parents of two children. Together, they serve their community with Jason holding the title of National Vice President and Local President of the Full Gospel Business Gatekeepers Organization and Katie holding an Advisory position at CareNet Manasota. 


Jason’s reach in Manatee county has rapidly grown alongside his and others’ belief in putting God first and following the foundations our fore fathers established at the onset of our beautiful nation; he has the same concerns that any parent, father or business owner would have about the quality of our schools, our quality of life, and ensuring that our children and grandchildren enjoy the same freedoms we do in this country we love.


Jason believes the challenges we face today are not hard, but they do require leadership. He believes that making change requires taking responsibility when the responsibility is yours and anticipating a problem before it becomes a calamity. In the Marines these truths became his moral code and they’re what he lives by today. He’ll use these engrained truths to protect Manatee County because he’s dedicated to doing what’s RIGHT, not what’s easy. It’s the kind of Marine he was. It’s the kind of commissioner he’ll be.


Help Angel and Ken Harrelson and the Jan 6 Families—

Following up on Angel Harrelson’s Talk at Manatee Patriots on January 4


When Angel Harrelson, wife of Jan 6 prisoner Ken Harrelson, spoke at Manatee Patriots on January 4, she gave us several actions we can take to help the Jan 6 prisoners and their families. Please do them!


1.  Pray the prayers Angel lists on GiveSendGo including this one: “Please pray for the truth to be told and ask God to put the fear into Satan to keep him away from our family.” See the rest here:

2.  Go to for lots of info and actions: read about the prisoners, and their families. There you can donate to any of the prisoners’ GiveSendGo

3.  Write letters to the prisoners. Go to Then click on Connect with a 1/6er and you’ll see an address where you can write to one or to each one (of the MANY still held prisoner!)

4.  WEEKLY, contact Angel’s Congressman, Bill Posey, Rep Vern Buchanan, Senators Scott and Rubio, and Gov DeSantis. Tell them to ACT NOW to free the Jan 6 prisoners. Put it in your calendar to do weekly!


Gov DeSantis: (850) 717-9337 or

 Rep Vern Buchanan: (941) 747-9081 or

Senator Marco Rubio: call (202) 224-3041

Senator Rick Scott: call (202) 224-5274
Ken Harrelson’s Rep, Bill Posey: Best way for us to contact Posey is a stamped and mailed letter: Congressman Bill Posey, 2150 Rayburn HOB, Washington, DC 20515. 

Here is a sample message: 

"Dear Governor DeSantis, 

It’s been nearly a year that our American citizens have been imprisoned unconstitutionally for being in the Capitol January 6 2021. As our elected official we direct you to do all you can starting today to free these citizens, many of whom are veterans. We are counting on you."

5.      If you haven’t already, watch and share Newsmax’s  documentary, “Day of Outrage.” This is a well-done, fact-based video about Jan 6 and the government’s tyrannical response. You can get Newsmax TV free on Roku. For information on “Day of Outrage” documentary:
