|On April 20, 2010, a tragedy occurred in the Gulf of Mexico. The
explosion of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig took the lives of
eleven men, including our dear friend, Jason Anderson. Jason
was the devoted husband of Shelley Simons Anderson, loving
father of Lacy and Ryver, and a wonderful friend to all who
knew him. Spending time with family was Jason’s top priority
when he was home from the rig. He also loved to play a round
of golf with his friends. We have decided to honor his memory
with an annual golf tournament. All proceeds from the Jason
Anderson Memorial Golf Tournament will be placed in a
scholarship fund that will benefit high school seniors in
Matagorda County who plan on furthering their education at the
college level. Click Here to Learn More...
