He went on to play golf at Austin College in Sherman, earning Academic All-Conference honors his last two years. Jason graduated from Austin College in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.

Jason grew up playing recreational golf with family but fell in love with the game in college. Outside of playing golf, Jason enjoys fishing, basketball, and softball.  Jason has been with Stonebriar since the fall of 2000, recently being promoted to Golf Shop Manager at the Fazio Course. He loves working with golfers of all types. Jason feels especially comfortable working with left-handed golfers, since he is indeed left-handed. Jason recognizes every golf swing is different and believes the golf instructor should conform to the student instead of trying to make the student conform to the instructor. 

He feels the best part of the job is getting outside and playing golf with Members. He currently lives in McKinney.
