While I was in college, Jason was one of the staff Lieutenants at my ROTC unit. Without question, he was the biggest influence on what kind of Naval Officer I became. He inspired me to be fiercely disciplined and to pursue a life that would make a difference. He showed me what it meant to lead by example, serve the people who work for you, and stand for integrity, especially when all these things come at a high personal cost. Ten years later, I continue to be grateful for the influence he had on my life.
