Born on the Gold Coast, Jason is one of two siblings and attended Mount Saint Patrick High School. Growing up, Jason was a budding golfer and aspired to play golf professionally. He quickly realised in his early twenties “that was never going to happen,” and so turned his hand to accounting at university, working as a trolly boy and delivery pizzas part-time. Jason’s decision to become an accountant was prompted by an “emotional link.” He was inspired by his mother who always took pride in doing her own books and meticulously balanced the numbers of the household finances. After finishing his degree, Jason fumbled his way through the beginning of his career and headed to London for 18 months, before returning to Australia to persevere in the accounting field.
Jason still plays golf and lives on Brisbane Bayside with his family, where he enjoys renovating his home.
