Hi I'm Jason

I'm a trail runner, mountain biker, backcountry skier, a hard-core father and husband... and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A Seattle native, I grew up as a member of the Mormon faith, served a 2-year mission in New York City Spanish-speaking, studied Marketing and work in the tech industry. I have a beautiful wife and 4 wonderful kids. I love to trail run, ride bikes (mountain and road), backcountry ski and do my best to balance those passions with my desire to be the best husband and father I can be.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the Mormon faith and have come from a long line of active members of the LDS Church. However, I grew up in Seattle and have had the opportunity to love and associate with people of many different faiths. Though all those faiths are wonderful and are filled with great people whom I call friends, I have an undeniable faith in the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the prophet Joseph Smith, we now have the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ... not a fabrication of intellectuals, science or government... it is the Gospel as the Savior instituted since the beginning of time. That has been confirmed to me time and time again via the Holy Spirit and I know this is the true and living Church of our loving Heavenly Father on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I'm an upstanding member of society, I have a great career in Web marketing and have worked for several top 50 Internet properties. I'm a Dad and a husband... a brother and a friend. I live my faith by treating others with respect, by being honest and by living the principles that are now the core of my being. I try to live my life in accordance with the principles that Jesus Christ taught when he was on the earth and heed the counsel of modern-day prophets who speak for Him today. I avoid things that don't bring harmony and peace into my life or my family. Negativity, vulgar speech, improper activities or abusive substances have no part of my daily life and I find that refreshing. I do my best to live a healthy lifestyle in mind and body and that brings peace and joy and blesses my family.

What is the Book of Mormon?

It's the record of the Lord's people in the America's. The record was given to Joseph Smith who then translated it with the help of the Lord. It contains gospel truths that were lost in all the myriad of translations that happened with the Bible. Show more Show less
