Skaggs Family

Jamy Skaggs

Board Director

Jamy grew up in the oil patch of Midland, Texas.  He attended Texas A&M University from 1992 to 1996 where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and graduated Summa Cum Laude. He went to law school at the University of Texas and earned his law degree in 1999. Jamy practices as a trial lawyer at his Tyler-based law firm, Black & Skaggs, PC, that was started in 2007. He was lucky to marry Kristin in 2004 and they have five children.  Their 14- and 13-year-old boys, Micah and Gavin, attend Bullard Middle School. Nathan (11), Kallie (8), and Abbie (6) homeschool with Kristin who received her Undergraduate Degree from UT Tyler and was a middle school teacher before marrying Jamy.  

The Skaggs family lives in Tyler, Texas, and loves doing all kinds of sports with their kids.  They are also active leaders at Green Acres Baptist Church since 1999, now directing and teaching the 7th-grade class, Jamy as a Deacon, and all the family doing missions, men’s and women’s ministry.

“We know the Bible says this life is like a mist – it appears for a short time, but then vanishes. So, by God’s grace, we are determined to do all we can in this short life to bring as many people to a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus as possible, all for God’s glory.  We are convinced Camp Iron Bluffs is one of the most impactful ways God can use us to do this.”
