Jason understands the complexities of forecasting everything from severe thunderstorms to snow and hurricanes to keep you and your family safe.
Jason holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology with a Communication Concentration from North Carolina State University and has earned the American Meteorological Society Seal of Approval. His interest in weather began in the third grade when he made a weather station for a science project. In high school, Jason decided to become a broadcast meteorologist, combining his love for both people and weather.
A North Carolina native, Jason is no stranger to the Lexington area. Jason spent time visiting the Lexington area as a kid, while his Dad completed his Doctor of Ministry at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, KY. When Jason is not tracking the weather, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, doing everything from biking and camping, to coaching his son’s basketball team and playing tennis. Jason is also excited about serving and supporting the community through St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, God’s Pantry Food Bank, the Salvation Army, and Buck Run Baptist Church. If you ever see Jason out and about, stop and talk to him, as he loves to make a new friend.
