Jason Rains
Vice President/COO

Jason Rains is a husband to his bride of 23 years, Father to his four “raindrops”, coach, combat veteran, business leader, minister of the Gospel, and all-around lover of people! Jason and Jeff met while traveling the world on various missions for the Army and forged an enduring brotherhood that can only be developed from operating in the trenches of high stress situations. Jason was one of the first people that Jeff shared the vision of Anabel’s Angels with and little did he know, a few years later Jeff would honor him with the opportunity to help establish the organization. Jason’s own Dad passed away from an undiagnosed blood disorder so he shares Jeff’s passion of aiding under funded research initiatives and helping people wherever needed. Jason works alongside Jeff wherever needed to help shepherd the organization and foster a culture of genuine caring for others and enriching their lives in any way we have the privilege to cross their paths.
