Originally from Minnesota (“Land of 10,000 Lakes,” 1,000 recipes for “hotdish,” and one Bob Dylan), Jason enjoys hiking and camping with his family, as well as any other excuse to get out to the woods and lakes that remind him of home. An avid fan of live rock, funk and jazz music, Jason eagerly awaits the day when science develops a working time machine so he can go back and see Elvis, Sinatra, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane live in concert.
Jason holds a B.S. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
