Jason was born and raised outside of Richmond and spent much of his youth in the waters of the mighty James River around Dutch Gap. You could say he grew up swimming in Civil War history. He feels privileged to be part of the program and has carefully installed every sign since 1994. While history might be the primary reason for travel, finding the best local BBQ and hot sauce is a close second. A music aficionado,when Jason's not on the Trail he enjoys going to concerts and festivals.
