Bringing the citizens of Canyon Lake together for the betterment of our community.
Jen is a native Texan and was raised in South Texas on a farm where her father is the 3rd generation farmer of the land. After high school, she attended Texas Lutheran University where she met and married her husband, Mike. She finished her studies in Business and Communications at the University of Houston in Clear Lake. They lived the first four years in Galveston where Mike attended Medical School, and then Syracuse, NY, for three years while he completed his residency. Once complete, they high-tailed it back to the warm weather and wonderful town of New Braunfels where they have settled, raised their boys, worked hard, and enjoyed life ever since.
Serving the community has always been a priority for Jen and her family. Since moving to Comal County in 2006 the Crownovers have relished the opportunity to serve with numerous volunteer organizations and several important community initiatives. It was through these endeavors that Jen had the opportunity to meet with many of our public leaders and learn the inner-workings of our county government. As her interest grew so did her passion and, seeing an incredible opportunity to step up her game and serve Comal County and her wonderful communities in a larger capacity, she made the decision to run for the open seat of County Commissioner. Jen and her family live in the Canyon Lake area. She and her husband (a physician and military veteran) just celebrated their 20th anniversary this year, and they are blessed with two sons. Reid is in college, and Boogie is a student at Canyon Lake High School, and is active in FFA and Scouts.

He has such a love for this area and its precious resources that are Canyon Lake and the Guadalupe river. He passionately believe these lovely resources need our help in order to be preserved and enjoyed for ourselves and generations to come.

Born and raised in Dallas, GA, a chance encounter in 2011 at the Canyon Lake Marina led Carolyn Hilderbrand to make the big move to Canyon Lake and take on a new role in the sales and marketing of live corporate events. She quickly grew to love our community and appreciate the unrivaled beauty of our Texas Hill Country community.
