Jason has been an inspiration for so many since his accident.  He never stopped pushing through and showing others no matter the obstacles in your way you can overcome them.  He is a true champion and always makes time to stop by our radiothon and support the children of St. Jude.  He knows just how important having the support of a community can be and he values the love he received.  He is now giving back wherever he is able.
