Jason’s passion for diving goes hand in hand with a commitment to marine conservation, and his experience as a PADI Divemaster has inspired him to take a more active role in efforts to protect the world’s oceans and the boundless life they contain. Jason feels it’s impossible to experience the wonders of the undersea world first-hand without coming away with a profound feeling of reverence, and a sense of duty to preserve those wonders for future generations. Conservation is the key to the survival of the planet, as we are all interconnected and our survival is tied together. Jason helps the cause in more direct ways, too. He has volunteered his time and expertise at Texas State University’s protected marine area at Spring Lake, and in the last few years, he’s become particularly involved in Ocean conservation efforts through Fins Attached, where he has found his home away from home. Jason is Tesla certified, involved with the automotive industry his entire life, he sees the push into this new technology as the way forward to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. At his company, Heritage Body and Frame they also use environmentally friendly paint systems to help reduce environmental impact.
