Beginning his first career, Jason earned international acclaim as an opera singer. Based in Los Angeles, he was featured in movies, soundtracks, television shows, commercials, and live concerts at such venues as the Getty, Princeton, the Kodak Theatre, the Los Angeles Opera, and Pebble Beach. As he rose to the industry’s top tiers, he was honored to sing and share the stage with one of the Three Tenors, opera legend Plácido Domingo. He has been seen on ABC, CBS, FOX, TLC, and the Discovery Channel, featured in the LA Times, and heard on Business FM. Jason’s meteoric rise came to a crashing halt when he was semi-decapitated, barely surviving. The accident left his right vocal cord, hemidiaphragm, and arm paralyzed. With the best doctors in the world assuring him he’d never sing again, Jason had to choose between tragedy and triumph. His story is compelling and inspiring.
The oldest of eight, Jason was a leader from a young age. He was a National Merit Scholar, Varsity Letterman, leader in the Student Council, and recipient of a full scholarship to Wabash College. Jason holds a BA in Vocal Performance & Theater from San Jose University and is an Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) licensed financial advisor.
