The son of public school teachers, Fallon is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and holds a degree in Government and International Relations. While attending Notre Dame on an academic scholarship he played varsity football under legendary coach Lou Holtz and was a member of the 1988 national championship team, and was also a cadet in Air Force ROTC.
Upon graduation Fallon received an Officer’s commission as Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force and served as an active duty officer for four years. During his service he was cited on numerous occasions by superiors and flag officers for superior performance and outstanding achievement. During his tenure serving in the Air Force, he was awarded the Air Force Achievement Medal.
After being honorably discharged from the military, Fallon embarked on a robust entrepreneurial journey, founding the first of several companies. Fallon is now the President and CEO of Virtus Apparel, which has a dozen locations across the country and employs nearly hundred Americans.
A past Frisco City Councilman and House District 106 Representative, Fallon has proudly been elected to serve his home State in the Texas State Senate, Senate District 30 beginning January 2019.
Inspired by a young cancer warrior named Jonny Wade, in January 2016, Mr. Fallon became the first person without any previous marathon experience to run 7 marathons, in 7 days on 7 different continents. Through faith and determination, he finished this extreme challenge raising well over $77,000 for pediatric cancer research. Jonny Wade’s primary wish before passing in December 2016 at 8 years of age was that no other kid get cancer. Fallon is doing his best to honor this wish one step at a time.
Pat has called North Texas home for over 25 years and he and his wife Susan are raising two busy sons, Thomas (12) and Mac (9).
