Tianay and Don met at church in 2003 and were married in 2006. Shortly thereafter, they moved to Coppell. They have three daughters, Makena, Brooklyn and Dalayni, which attend their neighborhood elementary and middle schools in Coppell ISD. Their church family is an integral part of their life.

“After growing up in Odessa and Rising Star, Tianay and I have found Coppell to be the perfect small-town size in the middle of an enormous Metroplex that offers its citizens a swath of world-class amenities. A crucial part of raising our daughters is to show them the importance of service to the communities in which we live, whether that be our city, schools or church.”
