Originally from North Dakota, Jason moved to Seattle after graduating from North Dakota State University with a double bachelor’s degree in architecture and environment design. He spent the first few years of his career traveling the country building out big box retail stores. Based on a desire to work on something more challenging he switched to healthcare and has spent the last 16 years building a healthcare leadership presence in the Pacific Northwest. His healthcare experience includes six years spent working at KMD from 1999 to 2005. Jason is married to an architect and together they have a combined family of four boys (three of which are teenagers). They enjoy travelling especially to his wife’s home country of Poland. Their travels have included long road trips from Seattle to the Arctic Circle and to Key West Florida.
