New Kids on the Block

Originally from Centreville (TJ) and Kingsport, TN (Jacquelyn), these “new kids” (with one on the way), moved to Arlington four years ago to enjoy the urban vibe.

TJ is in technology sales and Jacquelyn is a traffic engineer. In their free time, TJ likes cooking, fishing, admiring BMWs and spending time with family at Smith Mountain Lake; while Jacquelyn enjoys yoga, painting and traveling.

The couple expects their first child, a son, in early April—good company for their two dogs, Tony, the lovable 100-lb. Doberman “lapdog”; and Roscoe, a miniature schnauzer who adores Tony.

The Lassiters moved to “family-friendly” High View Park with hopes that their son will grow up here and make lasting friendships.
