This is just a harmless jumping spider. It may be this one Phiddipus Whitmani

Who knows. They are all so variable. We agree on Phiddipus anyway.

Species Phidippus cardinalis – Cardinal Jumper – BugGuide.Net
They are venomous like nearly all spiders, but far from toxic to humans or pets.
I watched one biting my finger (my bad) and a nothing bite gone by dinner.
