Hard to Kill: Houston Gass

June 03, 2020

BenShot Hard to Kill candidate Houston Gass

"I began my law enforcement career in 1999 with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice as a Correctional Officer. I attended the Amarillo Police Academy in 2002 and graduated and began my career on the streets.

"I have had a very rewarding career. I have spent time with the Friona, TX P.D., Pampa, TX P.D, and now proudly wear the uniform for Jacksboro P.D.

"On January 6, 2015, I was confronted with an officer’s worst nightmare. I was shot in the face by a 12-gauge shotgun at point blank range, through a door. I never saw it coming! My partners and I had responded to a domestic disturbance and 30 minutes later I was being carried out on a stretcher.

"It changed my life and the life of my family. My wife Jessica and our three children had their world turned upside down. While that day could be said to be my worst, I choose to look at it as my best. I am an unapologetic Christian, husband, father, survivor, and police officer!

"My life has been full of adversity. When I was young my oldest sister was murdered, my other sister committed suicide, my father died of cancer, and like many other officers I have been through a divorce.

"It’s not your circumstance that defines you, it’s what you do with it that determines your path. I firmly believe what Exodus 14:14 says: “The Lord will fight for you; you need only be quiet.” That has turned my life into one that has made me a survivor and not a victim.

"I use these circumstances to bring a message of survival and overcoming. My message is simple, the physical recovery is easy, the psychological and spiritual are the hard work. I want to encourage all, that you can make it through impossible circumstances and come out better for it!"
