I have had the privilege of knowing Jason as a great mentor, an exemplary father and most importantly a dear friend for the past 9 years. He has had a tremendous impact on my life since our years in medical school together. He is the very definition of leading by example. Through his actions, he has taught me how to be more disciplined in life. He has instilled in me the idea that challenging myself and stepping out of my comfort zone should be an integral part of striving to becoming a better person daily. It has been a very humbling experience to learn so much from him and I have no doubt that with time he will have a profound impact on the lives of many more people.
