The OU College of Law presented Jason Maloy with the Owen L. Anderson Distinguished ONE Award, as only the second recipient of this recognition, in honor of the magnitude of his impact on the oil and gas community at the ONE-J Symposium on April 2, 2021.

Since the divestiture he has founded Tall Cotton Energy LLC and become a partner at Rising Star Energy Partners LLC where he is focusing on acquisitions in the Permian Basin.

“I’m a landman and proud to be a landman. I am also a dad, a CEO, a philanthropist,…,” said Jason Maloy as he continues to add many titles to his portfolio. “I will always appreciate OU and the College of Law for giving me a foundation to help open up my first business and I will always be a Sooner for life.”
