Hi I'm Jason

I am a husband. I am a father. I am a engineer and an entrepreneur. And I am a mormon.

About Me

I am the fourth in a large family of 5 brothers and 5 sisters. We moved quite a bit and I attended 2 middle schools and 3 different high schools. Because of the many moves my family become my anchor. My brothers and I loved to camp, play sports, and eat. In the kitchen we always "doubled" everything; double cake pans, double size pots, and when we cooked, we always made enough for leftovers. I sometimes wonder how my parents paid for all the food in the house! I have wonderful memories of playing games at the house and many nights of staying up and talking about religion, politics, and how to make a living. To this day reunions are a blast because there are always things to talk about and catch up on with such a large family. I went to school and studied electrical engineering and loved everything about college. I loved working hard during the week and watching football on Saturdays. Maybe the reason I have such good memories about college is that is where I meet my wife. She also was studying electrical engineering and we quickly became best friends. I finally realized I better make my best friend my wife and asked her to marry me. The rest has been a life full of wonderful blessings and I have never looked back. We have four children. Since I met my wife and had my firts son, I never said the words, “I am bored.” We love to vacation as a family. Our favorite places are the Big Island of Hawaii and Disneyland. We love to ski together in Utah and Colorado.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church. My parents were converts after they were first married. My Dad had a co-worker who introduced the church. After 11 children, over 30 grandchildren, 6 sons serving a mission, and one daughter serving a mission, there was a very real affect from his decision to join the LDS church! I grew up in the church and gained a testimony of the truthfulness of restoration and the Book of Mormon when I was a teenager. It has been a huge blessing in my life to have the consistency and foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life from a very young age.

How I live my faith

We have had many good times mixed with challenges. One of the tougher ones was watching my wife struggle through cancer. I think it would have been easier for me to be the one diagnosed. I still remember bringing our three young children to Grandma while Tiffany went through radiation treatment. She was not allowed to be around the kids for two weeks. Going through this and other challenges has helped me to appreciate my faith. I try to improve daily as a husband and father. I am fortunate to have a solid foundation with Christ as the center of my faith. I feel extremely blessed to understand what he has done for me and it motivates me to try everyday to be the person I know I can become.
