Marshall is new district
Jason E. Marshall has begun his duties as Lawrence County's new District Court judge. He replaces Judge Larry Hayes, who resigned effective on Dec. 31.
A Lawrence County native, Marshall spent his early years in Ravenden and attended Sloan-Hendrix School until the age of 14, prior to transferring to Nettleton Public School.
"I have always considered Ravenden my home," Marshall said.
Marshall graduated with a bachelor's degree in finance in 1999 from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro and received his master's degree in business administration in 2003 from ASU.
In 2004, he received his juris doctor degree from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. From 2002-03, he also served as a law clerk for Judge Doug Schrantz of the Rogers District Court.
In 2004, Marshall opened his practice, Jason E. Marshall, Attorney at Law, in Jonesboro and has had the position of special master since 2010. He was also named the court appointed receiver of two multi-family investment companies holding over 100 residential properties.
Since 2007, Marshall has served as president of Connor Capital Holdings, LLC, which manages land acquisition, approvals, engineering and architectural oversight, construction, lease-up, management and sale of multi-family apartment projects. The company also subdivides commercial properties for resale.
In addition, he has been active since 2005 with MARMAC Construction, LLC, which is a licensed contractor performing single-family home construction, multi-family construction and remodeling purposes for long-term investment.
His prior experience includes president of JM Real Estate Holdings of Jonesboro, LLC, from 2011 to 2012.
As a community activist, Marshall founded the annual "Food Fight" event for the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas, which raised more than 13,000 food items during a two-hour event in 2011 and $7,500 in cash in 2012.
Marshall and his wife, Stephanie, have one son, seven. He plans to rent living quarters in Walnut Ridge and later purchase land to build on in Lawrence County.
