He graduated with a bachelor's degree in biblical studies from The Master's College, Santa Clarita, California.

Jason was a first degree black belt in Chung Do Kwon- Tae Kwon Do and participated in numerous outdoor activities. He and a group of friends had climbed Mount Rainier in Washington State. In January 2005, he enlisted in the United States Army. When asked why, he responded that he had seen so much suffering in the world, he thought he could alleviate some of it. After completing the One Unit Station Training, Army Basic Airborne Course and the 75th Ranger Regiment's Ranger Indoctrination Program training at Fort Benning, Georgia, he was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment in August 2005. He was on his third tour in Iraq.

He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal, Purple Heart, and the Meritorious Service Medal. Jason is survived by his parents, C. Michael and Pamela K.
