About Jason Miyares:

Jason’s story begins with his mother, Miriam Maria Miyares, who fled communist Cuba in 1965 with only the clothes on her back. She legally immigrated to the United States and instilled in her three sons a passionate love of the freedom and democracy of America. Jason grew up in Virginia Beach, attended public schools and eventually graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor's in Business Administration, and the College of William & Mary School of Law with a Juris Doctor degree. As a former criminal prosecutor in Virginia Beach, Jason has prosecuted over 600 criminal cases and helped keep violent criminals off the streets. In November of 2015, he won election to the 82nd District for the House of Delegates as conservative Republican. He lives in Virginia Beach, with his wife Page Atkinson Miyares, owner of a third-generation family owned small business. On December 2, Miyares announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for Virginia Attorney General.
