This will be his 10th year as a meteorologist.

During Jason's career, he has covered tropical storms that devastated the Capital Region; pinpointed tornadoes; and reported on severe weather outbreaks, blizzards, and crippling lake effect snow events. In addition to his meteorological duties, Jason, an animal lover, hosted a half-hour, weekly pet adoption show in conjunction with one of the local humane societies to promote animal welfare and help find shelter pets loving homes. In fact, he and his co-producer were honored with the 2015 Humane Media Award for their efforts by the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in Albany, N.Y.

Born in Niagara Falls, N.Y., Jason moved to the Albany area when he was 5 years old. He received a bachelor's degree in broadcasting and mass communications from SUNY Oswego and a bachelor's degree in broadcast meteorology from the University at Albany.

Jason is an avid snowboarder and has been a ski and snowboard reporter with SnoCountry Mountain reports for 20 years. The love of winter runs deep in his family, as his wife skis and snowboards and their kids have caught the snowboarding bug over the past few years. Jason is a huge music and movie fan and loves to talk about pop culture. An Eagle Scout, Jason was a den leader in his son's Cub Scout pack, loves the outdoors, and is looking forward to sharing all that Virginia and the surrounding area has to offer with his family.
