Shae began his full-time career in 2003 at Vertex Communications as a project engineer directly after graduating with honors from Letourneau University with a B.S. in Computer Science & Engineering. Through his eleven-year tenure at Vertex Communications (which was eventually acquired by General Dynamics Corp.), he led multi-disciplinary teams in the development, manufacture, and installation of satellite antenna terminals, which were principally used by the US armed forces. In 2014 he left the communications business and entered the same field in which his father and grandfather had spent their professional lives – oil & gas. He worked with DCP Midstream as a project and asset engineer at their Carthage facility of six plants and nearly 900 MMSCFD of processing capacity. In 2017, after more than 3 1/2 years in gas plant operations, Shae joined the team at Jasper Ventures, Inc. as a project manager. Shae is a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ, enjoys spending time with his wife, daughters, and immediate family, working in his machine shop, playing guitar, and being a part of pretty much any sport involving a ball, water or snow.
