After graduating from UWEC in 1996, he was hired as Director of Bands at Brookfield Central High School, where he has been teaching for the past twelve years. He has enjoyed the building process of a band program which consisted of 83 students in 1996, to a current program of approximately 200 students. Jason was named the School District of Elmbrook's "Outstanding Employee" in 2004 and was also named "Music Teacher of the Year" by WJZI's Jazz Radio Station in 2006.
