Growing up in Pittsburgh under the iconic dark blue and white Penn State flag, Jason was eager to study there. Graduating in 1998 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, he quickly excelled in the telecommunications field.
His journey to helping Bold Construction become one of the area’s premier builders began in 2003 when a business opportunity with a close friend and fellow entrepreneur opened up. After relocating his family to Chapel Hill, Jason became an integral part of the development and building company’s ownership leading the team in client relationships, project management, and business development.
Jason can be found spending time with his wife, Susan, and their two children, Carter and Tatum, playing a round of golf or volunteering with local nonprofits. As a part of the ‘Fuel Up’ program, he has helped to provide children with nutritional meals during the weekends and school breaks, when access to school meals is not available. When asked about his motivations and drive, Jason responds that he wants to help each child have the same opportunities as his own children have – access to proper nutrition, character building activities, and fun, memorable activities.
Jason has also been an active member of University Presbyterian Church since 2003 where he has served as a youth advisor and on the board of trustees in the past and currently serves on the building committee during the church’s expansion project. Not only does Jason reside in the Chatham County, Chapel Hill area, but he has also invested his time, business interests, and energy into the continued growth of the local economy making Chatham County one of the best places to call home.
