He has practiced law, and he has held positions in very level of government, has a significant background in philanthropy, and has professional expertise in real estate development, grant writing and management, opportunity — whether zone or youth –and affordable sustainable communities.

Jason also spent four years in the role of Town Administrator in Prince Georges County, Maryland, and has parlayed his education in legal and political theory into opportunities to affect real change at every level of political organization. As a leader with high acumen and emotional intelligence, he leads with pragmatism at all times, and sees civil discourse and good government as the only way for a republic to survive – and thrive. A member of Phi Sigma Alpha and Phi Beta Kappa, he has been providing expertise in ideal theory as a component of that pragmatism to great success throughout his academic and professional career.
If asked, Jason would tell you he hopes to be a change agent. There is a long and rich tradition of black intellectuals sewing the American fabric back together, and to be a part of that tradition, and making positive change, is really the simplest and yet most ephemeral goal. By focusing on professional experiences rather than a career path, he has a depth and breadth of experience that is difficult to match. Additionally, his dogged focus on moving this nation forward toward a more perfect union is as ingrained in him as the Blues.
