Jason shares his heartfelt story of overcoming as well as important lessons for all of us – like how to combat stereotyping. At a young age, Jason was placed in the foster system and joined a gang. He started down a painful path that eventually found him incarcerated. It wasn’t until Jason was in prison, though, that his eyes were opened to some of life’s most important lessons, including the power of community and mentorship.
Today, Jason is a remote instruction manager at the Last Mile, a non-profit that provides technology training to incarcerated individuals in hopes of preparing them to successfully re-enter the job market.
