George Taylor Jester

George Taylor Jester (August 23 1847-July 19 1922) served as Lieutenant Governor of Texas from 1895 to 1899. He was born in Macoupin County, Illinois to Levi and Diadema Jester. After his father died in 1858, Jester's mother moved the family, joining her father in Navarro County, Texas.

After trying several professions including merchandising, Jester founded what would become the Corsicana National Bank with two of his brothers. In 1890, he was elected to the Texas House of Representatives and served a term before being elected to the Texas Senate in 1892. After serving his two terms as Lieutenant Governor, Jester returned to Corsicana, where he died in 1922.

Jester's son Beauford served as Governor of Texas from 1947-1949.
