Are we sure?
This specimen seems to show a red dorsal midline on the anterior portion of the abdomen, a characteristic that seems more prevalent in M. poultoni rather than M. inclemens. While I know of no records for this species north of Texas, perhaps a little caution is in order here.

 
Inclemens Jumping Spider
I live in South Oklahoma City and just found one last night.
It was at my back door light.

(Got some great macro photography shots of it eating a small green leaf hopper too)
:-)

Took me a minute
but I'm fairly certain this is Maevia inclemens; an immature specimen.
