While this inductee may have traded his hockey bag for a briefcase, he continues to bring the lessons he learned on the ice to his work each and every day. Jason played rugby, football and hockey while at Ridley, but it was when he was on the ice that he caught the attention of scouts from Kent State University—earning a hockey scholarship that led to a four-year letterman career. After graduation, he went on to play professional hockey for 11 years in the American, International and East Coast Hockey Leagues, as well as the British Super League. During that time, Jason helped the Toledo Storm bring home one championship and the Memphis Riverkings earn two. He was also recognized as the East Coast Hockey League’s All-Star Game MVP in 1994 and 1995.
“Sports have taught me unbelievable leadership skills that I have carried into my off-ice career that I never would have learned or developed otherwise.”
