I met Jason through my time at Higher Ground (HG) – Military Program. Jason applied for HG in 2009 and we spent 2 years developing a friendship until he was finally able to join a program in 2011.
Jason is a fiercely loyal friend. He is one of the few people I know who would drop everything and come to my aid if I needed it. He is generous to a fault, always has the best of intentions, and wants nothing more in this life than to help others.
He moved to Sun Valley a year after his HG program and did a 6 month fellowship though with HG through Mission Continues. I had the pleasure of having countless adventures with him. He was even a groomsman at my wedding.
Jason served his country honorably as a US Marine in Iraq. He never quits, never let’s his injuries get in the way of his dreams, and accomplishes amazing things through sheer tenacity and power of will.
Jason’s love of life and adventure is unparalleled. I can’t even count the number of adventures he has had since I’ve known him. Jason climbs, mountain bikes, rafts, hunts, skis, mountaineers, and a host of other activities. Most improtantly, he does everything in his power to help fellow veterans. He is always ready for an adventure, and always ready to lend a helping hand.
Hats off to a good friend, and all around stellar man!
