Joe Beaver and his beloved wife, Jenna Head Beaver, have shared a journey of love spanning several decades. Throughout their enduring marriage, they have faced both joy and sorrow, including the profound loss of a child.
In her youth, Jenna dazzled as a skilled barrel dancer, leaving an indelible mark on her body that still reflects the grace and strength of those captivating performances.
Joe Beaver, born in Victoria, Texas, in 1965, is one of the greatest rodeo ropers of recent years.
As a twenty-year-old, he entered the PRCA and won the Resistol Overall and Calf Roping Rookie-of-the-Year awards. He also won the first of his five World Champion Calf Roping titles.
Joe Beaver has had his greatest success in the calf-roping event. He was competing in calf roping, team roping, and steer roping.
Beaver won his first gold tie-down roping buckle as a rookie at the Thomas & Mack in 1985, the year the NFR relocated to Las Vegas.
In 1987 and 1988, he won the Coors Chute-Out and Dodge Truck Series. On top of that, he also won the NFR average titles in calf roping in 1987, 1988, 1992, and 1996.
Beaver also won the calf-roping championships in Fort Worth and Houston the following year.
His ability as a team roping header, paired with his calf roping abilities, earned him World Champion All-Around Cowboy titles in 1995 and 1996.
