Jason began his career in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in 2008 as an Admissions Counselor. Subsequently, he became Director of Undergraduate Admissions in 2016, overseeing all Domestic, International, and Transfer Enrollment. Currently, he serves as the Executive Director of Undergraduate Admissions. During his time in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, he coordinated military and veteran student recruitment and oversaw an increase in veteran student enrollment from 40 students to well over 300 students today.

Under his leadership, the University welcomed three of the largest incoming classes in its history. These students matched the highest average GPA and test scores in the history of the University as well.

Jason enjoys bringing people together to share ideas and places a strong emphasis on employee morale and professional growth within the admissions office. Outside of the office, he enjoys traveling to Disney and spending quality time with family and friends.
