U.S. Congress Colorado 6th

Jason grew up in a working-class home with values that shaped his world view – values like hard work, honesty, and fairness. The grandson of a bricklayer and son of small business owners, Jason worked minimum-wage jobs during high school and eventually enlisted in the National Guard and worked construction jobs to pay his way through college. During college Jason decided to join the ROTC and serve in the active duty Army, eventually finishing at the top of his class as the Distinguished Military Graduate. After the horrific 9/11 attacks, he served in the Army’s storied 82nd Airborne Division. Shortly after returning from Iraq he joined the U.S. Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment, serving two additional tours – this time in Afghanistan, as part of the Joint Special Operations Task Force, where Jason served along the Pakistan border and achieved the rank of Captain.Since leaving the Army in 2006, Jason has been an outspoken and results-oriented advocate for his fellow veterans in Colorado and across the country. In 2012, fueled by the same patriotism and sense of justice that drove him to enlist in the military, Jason spoke at the Democratic National Convention, making the case for President Obama’s repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” He has also advised President Obama’s reelection campaign on military and veterans’ issues, co-chaired Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper’s Veterans Affairs Transition Committee, and co-chaired Veterans for Mark Udall.
