Jason is an Idaho native and puts his heart into everything he does…work, family, friends, health, and social life. He is a graduate of Nampa High School (1989) and Boise State University (1993).
He has worked in the disability field for over 20 years, most currently with Inclusion, Inc., as our Operations Director.
Jason advocates for families and individuals with intellectual disabilities at the state level. He served as the former President of the Idaho Association of Development Disabilities Agency (IADDA) and former Vice President on the Idaho Residential Supported Living Association. He has also been very active in several volunteer work groups that focus on advocating for individuals with special Healthcare needs. Additionally, Jason has provided various trainings and seminars for local community events (Idaho Partnership Conference on Human Services, Treasure Valley Autism, and School Districts).
Jason’s passion for improving the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities has even filtered into his personal life with his own commercial janitorial business and giving opportunities for increased independence and job skills.
When Jason is not busy with work (which is probably never!), he tries to find time for family time and enjoys movie nights; game nights (don’t challenge him to Monopoly otherwise it’ll be a 6hr event); staying fit and healthy with working out, bicycling, and walking; and poker (when he can find the time for it).
