About Trey

My name is Joseph G. Schisser III, but everyone calls me Trey.

I am a third-generation Texas native born in Webster just blocks from the Houston Space Center. I was raised in the small coastal town of San Leon. The town was economically disadvantaged, and this is where I learned the importance of supporting the community you live in. My family lived in the Southeastern Texas region for decades and were no strangers to community service. My grandparents, who served in the military during World War II, were very active in the VFW as well as the American Ex-Prisoners of War. They were shining examples of service for the good of the community. So, serving the people around us has been a family value for as long as I can remember. Whether it was coming together to clean up after a hurricane, helping to care for a neighbor during a health crisis, cleanup and maintenance assistance for seniors, or just offering up moral support for someone having a hard time, I always feel compelled to help where I can.

I am the Director of Security and IT Operations for WaveHDC, a Healthcare software services provider, and the Security Operations Manager for Rocket Dollar, a financial technologies company.

As a system/network/security engineer in the tech sector for over three decades, I have in-depth knowledge in project management, logistics, risk management, conflict resolution, cost-benefit analysis, and business communications. 

My career in the tech industry has given me the opportunity to live in several areas around the country. This let me experience different regional cultures and ideas that make this country better than the sum of its parts. It has also taught me that not every good intention is feasible. I believe evaluation of risk and reward is critical, and civil discourse is our best tool to find solutions to problems we face.

My wife of 20 years and I have two kids, a daughter currently attending Glenn High School, and an adult son in his second year at ACC. We have called Leander our home for the past 15 years. We are active volunteers in our community. I was the Committee Chair for Cub Scout Pack 316 for a few years, Booster Band Parents for Leander High School (Go Lions!), Theatre Booster parents at Glenn High School (Go Grizzlies!), and we continue to support many community groups in Leander. Through my volunteer experience, I have become familiar with parliamentary procedure and the level of effort that is needed to support community organizations. 

In my spare time, I am a general-purpose tinkerer/geek. I am comfortable in a kitchen, woodshop, metal shop, digging into a car engine, playing with software development, and building electronics projects. I am not afraid to deep dive into a new project or idea, and I am often found researching the details of obscure tech just for fun.
