Sports Officer, RMIT University
Jason grew up in a small country town in north-west Victoria. He moved to Melbourne for University and fell in love with the city; and has remained here ever since. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Business (Sport Management), majoring in Human Resources back in 2015, Jason has undertaken a significant amount of both full-time and volunteer work within the Sports, Recreation and Events industry.
Jason has experience within program delivery specialised for people with a disability in sport, such as:
- a liaison between Disability Sport & Recreation and clients through a long-term placement,
- running day services programs in Echuca,
- assisting multiple all abilities sports teams,
- attending multiple training and professional development conferences focused on inclusion and diversity.
He is passionate about inspiring the lives of others through the power of sport and specialises in building sustainable relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders.
Jason was diagnosed with a neurological/psychosocial disability, Tourette’s Syndrome, when he was in primary school, however, he has never let this control his life or affect his high ambitions within life. He is passionate about advocating for and ensuring everyone in life can achieve their full potential, despite their disability, which lead to him joining the Board of Directors with People with Disability Australia (PWDA) in early 2018.
