Jana Della Rosa was elected to the Arkansas House of Representatives by District 90 in November of 2014. She currently serves as a member of the City, County, & Local Affairs Committee, Public Transportation Committee, and the Joint Performance Review Committee.
During her first term in the House, Jana focused her efforts on sponsoring legislation that was either requested by her constituents or that brought improvements to District 90. She also made it her mission to bring greater transparency to campaign finance in Arkansas by sponsoring legislation to make online campaign finance reporting mandatory for statewide and district candidates.
Jana is a native of Northwest Arkansas. Born and raised in Springdale, she graduated from Springdale High School in 1994. She then attended the University of Arkansas where she met and married her husband Russell, a native of Tontitown. They both graduated at the top of their respective classes in 2000; Jana with a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering and Russell with a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering.
Upon graduation, there were extremely few Industrial Engineering positions available in Northwest Arkansas. Rather than move out of state to accept job offers in Texas, Jana and Russell chose to remain near their family in NWA. Russell joined Acxiom Corp as a Software Engineer at their Fayetteville office. Jana changed careers, accepting an entry level sales analyst position with Ozark Consulting and Marketing in Fayetteville which helps small businesses introduce, sell, and distribute their products to Walmart and Sam’s Club.
In 2002, Jana joined the Bentonville-based Walmart Team for Church and Dwight Co., Inc., a $2.6B CPG company headquartered in New Jersey. During her 10-year tenure, she was promoted from an entry-level Sales Analyst position to the company’s top National Account Manager position, responsible for all laundry product sales to Walmart.
In 2006, Jana had her first child, Reagan, and the family moved to Rogers. In 2011, their second son, Riley, was born. Just a few short months afterward, Jana left her job at Church & Dwight to be a stay-at-home mom.
Jana currently serves as the Executive Administrator for Conservative Arkansas, a grassroots organization dedicated to identifying, electing, and holding accountable conservative candidates at both the state and national levels. She has worked on many local campaigns, and is also a member of the Benton County Republican Committee and the Benton County Republican Women. Jana enjoys spending time with her family, Razorback sports, walking, reading and being outdoors. Jana has a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ and her faith is the foundation for everything in her life.
