Life experiences have guided Jason through many different adventures.  As a result of dedication and intense training he was a member of the 2002 Olympic Team in long track speedskating.  He set the American Record in the 10,000 meter speedskating event with a time of 13:32.99 and a 12th place finish.

To this day, Jason enjoys telling people about his Olympic journey and what it takes to set and reach a BIG goal.  As a financial advisor, he uses his goal setting and investment expertise to give clients guidance along their personal journey of money management.
