Greg Parker, USMC Retired Master Sergeant, former Drill Instructor, College Football Coach)

I worked with Jason at the University of California, Berkeley, Navy ROTC unit. I knew immediately from his first day that he would have a positive and lasting impact on the aspiring Navy and Marine Corps officers. What I did not know was that his impact would change the direction of my own life. He encouraged me during my bachelor’s degree to keep pushing and to move forward with attaining a master’s degree, and he kept encouraging me along the way. He’d remind me to always speak with positive energy, and those words always stuck with me, especially during tough times. Jason has always gone well beyond the call of duty in helping me be successful as a father, Marine, and football coach. I am grateful for you my friend. I’ll Never Forget.
