Meet Jeff Frederick
Jeffrey M. Frederick served three terms in the House of Delegates, the lower body of the General Assembly of Virginia representing Eastern Prince William County, one of nine jurisdictions in Northern Virginia. He is the first and only Latino ever elected to the Virginia legislature. Jeff is also the former Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, and a former member of the 165-member Republican National Committee.
When elected to the legislature, Jeff was the youngest member of the General Assembly, and when elected chairman, was the youngest state GOP Chief in the nation.
During his legislative career, Mr. Frederick was a member of four standing committees: Finance; Transportation; Health, Welfare, and Institutions; and Privileges and Elections. He was first elected in November 2003, re-elected in November 2005, and again in November 2007 with 59% of the vote — in what many view as a strongly Democratic-leaning district.
He has served on several boards and commissions, among them the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority, and the Virginia Small Business Commission, where he was Chairman.
Jeff is active in a number of local and national political organizations, including the Club for Growth; the Republican National Hispanic Assembly; America’s Future Foundation; and the Council for National Policy. He is Chairman of Virginia’s Future PAC.
Jeff is a concerned citizen and community activist, having served on the Civilian-Military Council at Marine Corps Base Quantico and is a graduate of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) Citizen’s Academy. He has been active with Virginia Citizen’s League, the Masons, and a past member of the board of directors for the National Capitol Area Chrysalis/Emmaus community. He also previously served on the boards of both the Hispanic Business Roundtable and the Latino Coalition. Jeff and his family attend All Saints Church in Dale City, Virginia.
Professionally, Jeff is Chief Executive Officer of GXS, a Virginia based internet, technology, and communications company. He founded the company in 1998, which specializes in online activism and in providing IT solutions to government agencies. He is also President of Tribord Management, a real estate investment management firm.
Jeff is a graduate of Oxford College and Emory University with degrees in economics and political science. Jeff is a life-long and avid sailor who loves the water; he’s been a Redskins fan since childhood; and keeps fit by playing racquetball, softball and cycling frequently.
Jeff is a Virginia native (born in Fairfax hospital). He and his wife, Amy, live in Montclair with their children Gracie, Isabel, and Michael.
