The Facebook post quickly went viral, spreading throughout Collier’s small northern Texas Panhandle city of 1,800 people and across the internet.
Jason Collier has been married twice
Jason Collier has been married twice and has four children, two with his ex-wife, and two with his current wife, Opal Collier.
He wrote a post on Facebook in September 2020 wishing his wife a happy anniversary. Collier’s wife has not commented about the Facebook drama.
“Happy anniversary to my beautiful bride! I couldn’t imagine doing this life without you,” Collier wrote in his now-deleted September 3, 2020, post. “I know I fall short daily of being the Godly husband, but know I will work hard to be the man you deserve! God has blessed me with you and I can’t wait to see what all He has in the works for us! Thank you for loving me, sacrificing for us, and walking this life beside me! I love you … Here’s to many more years and memories to come!”
According to Steinmetz, she confronted Collier about being married and he tried to play it off by saying his marriage was annulled in 2016. Steinmetz wrote on Facebook, “he even provided me with a picture of a falsified document, which I have verified with Potter County to be invalid
Jason Collier Mistress, Cecily Steinmetz
Cecily Steinmetz, a 39-year-old Amarillo woman, first exposed Collier in a January 26th post on Facebook. Steinmetz tagged the city of Stinnett (adding that she “doesn’t recommend” the city) and wrote, “Chief Jason Collier is living a double/triple life. I was his girlfriend until yesterday.
He lied to me and presented me with fake annulment documents when I found out he was married. I also found out about a 2nd girlfriend, Kristi, last night. He has lied to us, our children, and asked us both to marry him.”
He is a poor representative of your town. He would also visit me in Amarillo when he was on shift. We just returned from a vacation in Taos on Sunday – meanwhile, his other GF was told he was on work assignment in Portland
Steinmetz wrote in another post “Chief Jason Collier worked his way into my life, the life of my children and family. Spent the weekend with me on vacation in Taos this past weekend. Told me all weekend how he can’t wait to marry me. Turns out, I’m not the only one. He also has a girlfriend in Kansas who he also had asked to marry him. All of this, PLUS a wife at home he claims to have split with in 2016.”
She added, “He took me on shift with him last week as well, but wouldn’t introduce me to the ladies in the office since according to him, ‘they’re b****** and one is mad I won’t date her sister.’ Everything he told me and my family is a lie and is a poor representation of your town. He clearly has no morals or ethics. He has also driven to visit me in Amarillo while on shift in his police vehicle. Not only has he hurt me, but he has also hurt my children with his lies … The jig is up, Jason.”
Steinmetz added, “So anyway, I hope this serves as a warning to anyone else he is lying to and manipulating. I feel stupid having this made public, but will take the embarrassment if it saves anyone else from the heartache.”
Jason Collier has not commented on the accusations
The 41-year-old Collier has not commented about the accusations against him. But the city of Stinnett issued a statement on January 27th saying it “is aware of the current situation surrounding” the chief. The statement was posted to the city’s Facebook page.
