Mark was born on April 24, 1979 to Randel and Katheryn (Roberts) Matheson. He grew up in the Clareville community of Bee County and attended school at Skidmore-Tynan ISD. During his high school years, Mark enjoyed raising and showing cattle through 4-H and FFA projects and participating in UIL academic competitions. After graduating from Skidmore-Tynan High School as salutatorian in 1997, Mark attended Texas A&M University in College Station, majoring in agriculture and competing as part of the Beef Cattle Show Team. Mark committed much time and energy to pursuit of “The Other Education” during his time at Texas A&M, and therefore later transferred to Sam Houston State University, graduating in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science. After college, Mark served as an agricultural extension agent in Deaf Smith County for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, and later as a high school agricultural science teacher at Lake Worth ISD. After working as a manager for several years at Round Up Saloon in Dallas, he returned home to Bee County in 2018 and was employed as a sales manager at Fuller Tractor Company in Alice.
