Heather Carr was born and raised in Fresno, California and attended Fresno State University. At Fresno State, Heather studied early childhood education and received her bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies. During her time at Fresno State, Heather also met her husband, Derek Carr.
In 2012 Derek and Heather were married and the following year in 2013, their first son Dallas was born. Dallas was born with intestinal malrotation, a potentially life-threatening congenital anomaly that can cut off blood supply to the intestinal tract. Dallas underwent two more surgeries and spent 23 days in Valley Children’s Hospital in Fresno, California. Thankfully, the Lord healed Dallas while getting care. Following their time as a family at Valley Children’s, both Derek and Heather have become intimately involved in Valley Children’s and have established the DC4KIDS Fund to support children in the Central Valley. Heather and Derek have also provided a scholarship to help other students attend Fresno State University.
As the wife of an NFL player for the Las Vegas Raiders, Heather also works closely with the Raiders’ significant others in making sure to connect and welcome them. She hosts a Bible Study at her house to help lead them closer in their walk with the Lord.
Currently, Heather’s two older son’s, Dallas and Deker, attend Capstone Christian Academy. At Capstone, Heather helped established the Parent Teacher Organization to help support teachers and staff and enjoys fundraising for the school and seeking ways to expand the current school population and bring awareness to the community.
On Sunday’s, Heather attends Church LV and is heavily invested in helping with her husband’s ministry, The Tribe of Judah. During the off season, both Heather and Derek are busy attending and speaking at church services across the region to spread the gospel of Christ and promote love and faith.
As a mother of four – Dallas, Deker, Deakon, and Brooklyn – Heather is eager to bring balance to her life as a mother and wife, as well as a steward of the community of Las Vegas. Beyond taking great care of her family, Heather enjoys participating in school events and being involved in the growth of Capstone, enriching the lives of each student and family that steps onto the campus.
