Jason was blessed to grow up in a Christian home in Central Illinois surrounded by a large loving family. After studying piano performance at Illinois Wesleyan University, he worked in the music department at IWU and lead worship in local churches for 13 years. In 2002 Jason married his wife Jessica (a licensed clinical social worker) after meeting on the worship team at church. In 2009 Jason felt God calling him on a new path and moved his family to Spring Grove to pursue a new career. Upon joining LifeSpring Church, Jason and his family also felt that God had provided them with a new family and community. Here he has been blessed to be a part of the worship team and also helps lead LifeSpring's Men's Ministries. Helping men draw closer to the Lord, as well as their families and community, is one of Jason's greatest passions. He also loves golf, travel, and music. But, most of all, he is dedicated to his wife and 3 daughters, and his very favorite thing is cuddling with his kids at the end of the day.
