Jason “Jay” T. Maloy, CPL
Jason Maloy, CPL, is a partner and co-founder at Tall Cotton Energy, LLC and Rising Star Energy Partners, LLC, both based in Dallas. He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from AAPL-accredited programs at the University of Oklahoma. He has worked many states, regions and facets of landwork while managing assets and staff for top companies in the energy exploration and production business. While working more than $17 billion worth of acquisition and development deals, receiving robust management experience and displaying unparalleled determination while assembling and managing hundreds of thousands of prime acreage across the U.S., he has proved himself a natural-born leader with a track record of success.
An active member of AAPL and the Dallas Association of Petroleum Landmen since graduation, Maloy has served DAPL as a board member and AAPL as a committee member and has received awards from both. Most recently he was the AAPL Accreditation Committee chairman responsible for accrediting all 14 programs across 12 different universities that maintain undergraduate and graduate-level land programs. An extreme competitor by nature, Maloy enjoys all athletic events and believes challenges in life are made to be overcome. Finding that working with young industry minds keeps him both engaged and challenged, he regularly speaks at AAPL-accredited programs and universities across the country.
He and his wife, Dr. Lezlie Maloy, enjoy participating in philanthropic events and created the MP Foundation for ALS Awareness to honor a co-worker who died with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. In 2008 he completed Ironman Florida to help raise more than $56,000 for a scholarship at OU in memory of a fellow landman and DAPL member. To date he has completed more than 90 multisport events, including six Ironman Triathlons and over 20 marathons. In the fall he enjoys traveling to Norman to watch football with his wife and son Brooks. They are expecting their second child in July.
