Chris Emami is the founder and owner of CEC Consulting and is currently an adjunct professor at Chapman University.

Additionally, he holds a California Teaching Credential and Real Estate License. His volunteer work includes serving on the City of Anaheim Housing Commission and he was a high school basketball coach for 15 years. 

In consulting, Chris has worked on numerous political campaigns as a campaign manager and campaign consultant. He has an expertise in research and is considered one of the foremost experts on local campaign finance. His work over the past few years has earned him a strong reputation as one of the leading consultants on local political campaigns. His perspective is unique because his career has been spent mostly working in the private sector. Chris is currently a member of The American Association of Political Consultants.

Chris currently resides in Orange County California; however, he frequently travels to Minnesota and Illinois to meet with clients. He does not see geography as a barrier to working with any client. Most importantly he treats all of his clients like family and will return phone calls and respond to e-mails. No client is considered too small to receive top quality service.


Jackson Reese

Jackson is a Political Consultant with CEC Consulting. He is weeks away from graduating from Biola University with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Biblical Studies.

Jackson first became involved in politics after he was kicked out of his high school classroom for voicing his political opinions. He quickly developed a passion for the political sphere and began working alongside California Policy Center after an internship with Orange County Superior Courts.

Jackson moved to Washington, D.C. this last year taking an internship with the Republican National Committee. At the conclusion of the internship he was asked to deploy back to Orange County, coordinating faith engagement through the 2018 election cycle. Jackson split his time on the ground monitoring GOTV efforts with CRP, and targeted faith engagement efforts for the RNC.

Jackson has assisted multiple campaigns throughout the last three years. He is a strategic and creative thinker, optimistic, organized, responsive and highly independent. Jackson’s passions include volunteering in student ministries at his church and watching football. He can often be found reading the works of C.S. Lewis at coffee shops around Orange County.
