Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Jason graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in exercise and sport science. At age 15, he started working for Utah's Hogle Zoo selling cotton candy. Over the years, he worked his way up, finishing his career 20 years later as the Director of Development.
Jason came to Glenside in 2007 to attend Westminster Theological Seminary, where he received his masters of divinity in 2012. It was during seminary that he first began volunteering with the youth in junior high. It didn’t take him long to figure out that the Lord was calling him to shepherding and caring for young people. He’s been happily fulfilling that calling at New Life since September 2009.
