His extraordinary messages remind students that they hold the key to success. Each day is an opportunity to use that key to unlock the door and become better than you were the day before,” Coach Jason tells his audience.

While growing up in Toledo, Ohio, Coach Jason bravely continued to pursue his path. He went on to become a first-generation college graduate. Following that, his professional achievements included working as a sportswriter, coaching high school and college basketball, and serving as an educator and mental health specialist.
In 2007, Coach Jason began his speaking career on a mission to help young people see past their situations and circumstances to become all they were born to be. His faith gave him the fortitude to keep pressing on and trusting that vision.
With each speech, he encourages audiences to keep pursuing their passion and speaks in a way that propels students upward and onward.
He tells his audiences, “You have to be tougher than the obstacles that stand in your way, stronger than the negative words people might say, and crazy enough to believe your dreams will come true someday.”
