Background: Jason discovered Crossfit after a background of high school and collegiate football. After graduating from the United States Air Force Academy in 2004, he served as an intelligence officer at various Air Force Special Operations Command units. He completed his first WOD in Aug 2007 and has not looked back since. While stationed in Tacoma, WA, he fined tuned his Crossfit skills under the tutelage of Kurtis and Laurie Bowler (Rainier Crossfit). With their coaching and support Jason took first place at the 2009 Northwest Regional and qualified for the Crossfit Games where he eventually took 53rd. Over the next 3 years, he focused his attention on coaching his fellow unit members during Crossfit workouts.
After almost 8 years on active duty, Jason separated from the Air Force in Feb 2012 and moved to Martha’s Vineyard with his wife Darcy (Hodgson) and son Tristan with another child due in March 2012. He is currently employed as a substitute teacher while working on his MS in secondary education and has recently joined the Massachusetts Air National Guard.
Jason firmly believes the best part of Crossfit is the community. He is looking forwards to being part of the Crossfit Martha’s Vineyard family and helping everyone work towards their fitness goals.
