Mayor Holland was elected in 2021 for his first term in office.
He was born and raised in Eastern North Carolina and moved to Zebulon in 2002, where he married his wife, Jessi. After a career as a hairstylist, she is now a stay at home mother to their two children, Jagger and Jansen. Both attend Croatan High School and have been involved in numerous extracurriculars since moving to Emerald Isle.
Jason has spent the last 15 years in the branch banking and mortgage lending industries and is currently the producing branch manager at the Movement Mortgage office in Emerald Isle. He enjoys assisting families in making their dream of home ownership on the Crystal Coast a reality. When he isn't working, Jason enjoys spending as much time on the water as possible and being involved in community outreach and charitable causes whenever the need arises. He says helping others is his greatest passion. He also sits on the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
I love to serve the citizens of Emerald Isle, and I'm grateful and honored for the opportunity to do so at the mayoral level, he said.
