Jim Vanderwater

Board Member

Jim doesn’t talk much, but when he does, you should listen. He’s husband to Michelle and father to three daughters, Rachel, Christy and Annalise. During the day, he’s a district engineer for the Gulf Coast Water Authority and serves as an elder and a member of the board of directors at Oikos Church. Prior to his current engineering position, he retired from the City of Houston at age 46 and consulted for private industry and LINC Houston, a nonprofit ministry that helps people in need. He’s a University of Texas alum and received a master’s degree in environmental engineering from University of Houston. Jim’s quite the jack-of-all-trades. In his free time, Jim enjoys being the family handyman and cultivating a beautiful backyard.
