For five years, he was the Global Director of Community Affairs where he led a team that worked to create positive impact in communities around the globe through employee volunteerism and strategic NGO partnerships. Before joining LS&Co., Jason worked for the Northern California Community Loan Fund, where he created and launched a financial training program for grassroots social justice organizations.  Earlier in his career, Jason worked at Habitat for Humanity.
Jason holds an MBA degree from Boston University’s Graduate School of Management and an undergraduate degree from the University of New Hampshire. He serves on several boards – including the Net Impact Corporate Advisory Council - and is a frequent speaker on the topics of corporate philanthropy and CSR.
When Jason is not donning a “Canadian Tuxedo” (head-to-toe in denim) for Levi’s, he can be found on a bicycle or in his running shoes - he also enjoys playing tennis. Jason lives in Oakland, California and spends significant time in his home state of New Hampshire, where his daughter Denali attends college.
