Dedicated and Hard-working.
At Hopewell Area High School, Jason played football and wrestled while taking numerous odd-jobs to help his family, including grass cutting, busboy, roofer and McDonalds’s cook. Jason then attended Allegheny College in Crawford County, where he graduated magna cum laude with a 3.8 GPA, which earned him Phi Beta Kappa honors. Additionally, Jason became a three-time NCAA Academic All-American wrestler and finished his collegiate wrestling career as only the third wrestler in Allegheny history with 100 wins.
After college, Jason worked his way through law school performing hard labor as a union worker at an Aliquippa steel mill. In 1993, Jason attended one of the top law schools in the country, Ohio State University. Jason graduated in 1996 and returned home to Pittsburgh to work at one of the largest law firms in the world, K&L Gates LLP.
At K&L Gates, Jason burst onto the legal scene, representing large and small manufacturing and energy companies and contractors throughout the world as well as representing the highest profile professional wrestling organization. About half way through his career, Jason began representing companies to uncover government corruption and procurement irregularities at state and local governments throughout the country. In 2005, after less than 10 years at K&L, Jason earned the opportunity to become a partner in the firm.
Jason’s work ethic, experience in the private sector, and passion for making things right, make him the best candidate for leading the Great Pennsylvania Comeback.
