JT Wilcox

Representative J.T. Wilcox was sworn in as state representative for the 2nd Legislative District, which includes rural southeast Pierce and Thurston counties, in 2011. He sits on three committees — Appropriations, Rules and Finance — and currently serves on the House Republican leadership team as floor leader.

J.T.’s legislative priorities include providing a quality education for children, crafting a sustainable state budget, and reversing the anti-jobs trend that has damaged the economy of Washington outside of a few hotspots. He believes long-term and sustainable solutions are needed to put the state on a stable path of prosperity and growth for generations to come.

For 23 years, Representative Wilcox was employed at his 4th generation family business, Wilcox Farms. He managed diverse operations, including multiple food processing plants, feed mills, an 800 cow dairy herd and greenfield manufacturing development. He also led the acquisition of three additional dairy companies. In the 2000s, J.T. served as Chief Operating Officer and then Chief Financial Officer of Wilcox Farms.
