While Jason spent most of his teen years as a musician, he found exercise in his 20’s and fell in love. He started with traditional gym workouts and segued into yoga and running, eventually running the Chicago Marathon in 2018. Finally, after looking for a new way to exercise in 2019, he found CrossFit and hasn’t looked back!
Working with the youth and giving back to the community have always been important to Jason. He was a student mentor for 2 years while a student at Loyola University Chicago, teaching high school students about journalism and reporting. He’s also volunteered with several Chicago-area charities, working with younger kids in after-school programs.
Jason lives in Lakeview with his fiancé, Stephanie, and their cat, Lila. When not at Hardware, you can find him playing his guitar, riding his bike, cheering for the Bears and rocking out to Foo Fighters.
