He is the director of program operations and evaluation at Hire Heroes USA, a national nonprofit dedicated to empowering U.S. military members, veterans, and military spouses to succeed in the civilian workforce. After graduating from Denison University with a degree in history and education, he joined the United States Army where he served as a reconnaissance officer in both Iraq and Afghanistan, earning both the Army Commendation Medal and the Bronze Star. A native Atlantan, he returned to Georgia to help transitioning military veterans in a full-time capacity while concurrently earning a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Georgia.

He has also served on the board for two Atlanta transportation advocacy organizations – the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, which works to transform Atlanta into a more livable, accessible city by making biking equitable, safe, and appealing; and Advance Atlanta, which is a citizen-driven grassroots advocacy coalition dedicated to building support for transit expansion in metro Atlanta.
As a resident of Atlanta’s historic Mechanicsville community, Jason has played an active role throughout Neighborhood Planning Unit V; this includes serving as the co-chair of the Intrenchment Creek Community Stewardship Council, serving as communications chair for the NPU, serving on the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation NPU-V Advisory Board, serving as vice president for the Mechanicsville Civic Association, and at one point serving on the Steering Committee for the Turner Field Community Benefits Coalition. Jason also served on the board of the BeltLine Tax Allocation District Advisory Committee, working to ensure citizen oversight of the planning, design, and implementation of the Atlanta BeltLine.
