EDUCATION IS IN HIS BLOOD
Cade Lovelace understands the importance of quality public education. You might even say it is in his blood. He grew up in a family where both of his parents held master’s degrees in education and worked as professional educators in the Grapevine ISD. His father was a football coach, a History teacher, and an assistant principal. His mother taught English before also becoming an assistant principal. Both are now retired. In 2010 the Grapevine High School alumni elected his father to the Grapevine High School Hall of Fame as a teacher.
Cade attended Grapevine High School where he excelled both in and out of the classroom. In 1996 he helped lead the Grapevine High School football team to the Texas State Championship. As a senior, he was both Captain of the football team and participated in the school’s Mock Trial team, eventually participating in a mock trial event at the Tarrant County Justice Center.
TCU AND LAW SCHOOL
TCU was the next stop for Cade which he attended with the aid of an academic scholarship. A proud Horned Frog, he studied History and played football for one season, long enough to earn a Sun Bowl ring. When Cade completed his degree, he attended the Texas Tech School of Law where he graduated in the top 10 percent of his law class.
RETURN TO FORT WORTH – FAMILY AND BUSINESS
Cade met his wife Jennifer while in law school at Texas Tech.
After law school, he returned to Fort Worth and worked briefly for a big downtown Fort Worth law firm before deciding to open his own law office. A few years later, Jennifer joined him at his firm and they now have an office of 6 attorneys concentrating on family law, estate planning, probate, and corporate matters. The firm is centered in Fort Worth’s Near Southside on 8th Avenue and also maintains an office in Burleson.
Education and family are central to Cade’s core values and the accomplishments he shares with his family are a point of pride that stems from the opportunities he has been given. Cade and his family have established deep roots in Fort Worth. His sister, Lauren Murray, has worked at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo for over 15 years and is currently the Horse Show Manager. She is the first woman to hold that position in its history.
Jennifer and Cade live in the Ryan Place neighborhood where their two daughters attend Daggett Montessori School.
Service to our community is not new for Cade. He is currently the President of the Daggett Montessori PTA where he has worked closely with the school’s parent community to support their teachers through the challenges of teaching through dual modalities during COVID-19. He was elected president of the Ryan Place Improvement Association for four years and he worked with our neighborhood public schools. While president, he worked with FWISD to change the attendance boundaries to include the entire Ryan Place neighborhood in a single elementary attendance zone.
Cade has served on numerous citizen committees, including FWISD's District Advisory Committee, he chaired a task force that addressed safety issues with the Fort Worth Police Department after a kidnapping in his South Side neighborhood, he has been the President of the Johnson County Bar Association, and has led the Candlelight Christmas in Ryan Place Home Tour.
Today Cade is prepared to serve FWISD by bringing stable governance and a collaborative approach to the Fort Worth Board of Education. He looks forward to seeing you on the campaign trail!
