A native of Buffalo Grove, IL, Jason graduated from Penn State University in 2002. After spending a season with the Billings Bulls of the NAHL, Jason came to Wichita in 2004. He started out as a ticket sales associate and play-by-play voice of the Thunder. In 2007, Jason went to Steckline Communications, where he did sales and radio of high school sports for four years. He hosted 'The Press Box,' an afternoon talk show from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. with the likes of Brad Streeter and Paul Savage. In 2011, Jason re-joined the Thunder and became the Director of Communications. He was the recipient of the 2012-13 Central Hockey League Communications Director of the Year and also won the 2013-14 CHL Spirit Award, which was awarded for a staff member who showed passion and dedication to the league. He was also named as a runner-up for the Broadcaster of the Year that same season. Away from hockey, Jason enjoys spending time with his daughter, Hannah.
