Community Introduction


Named for war hero Sgt. William Jasper, Jasper is tucked comfortably on the eastern side of Texas near the Louisiana border. While tourists come for the outdoor adventures courtesy of Lake Sam Rayburn, people are also finding Jasper a wonderful spot to relocate. Thus, the populace of Jasper is strong and growing. Since 2000, it has risen nearly 10 percent, totaling around 8,500 in 2007.

A 14-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio is just one of the many positive qualities that the area education system brings to the table, ensuring that Jasper is a place to bring your family. A low cost of living (one that is well below the U.S. average), reasonable housing prices and well-equipped local healthcare facilities are other inviting factors for people who are considering relocating to this naturally beautiful corner of the world.

Whether it’s the obligatory Southern hospitality, the area’s unmatched amenities or the perfect proximity to larger cities such as San Antonio, Houston or Dallas in Texas and New Orleans in Louisiana, people are coming to Jasper and making it their home.
