Jason will be one of the first Black out LGBTQ+ legislators in Michigan history!
Jason has spent the better part of his professional career in public service – working for the residents of the 18th house district for almost a decade as a legislative staffer for two Southfield state legislators and as a city councilman. He’s been able to help craft legislation that reduces commercial blight, promotes neighborhood investment, protects Southfield’s environment, and makes sure government is open and transparent. Now he’s ready to use his experience in Lansing as State Representative.
Jason graduated from Eastern Michigan University with his bachelor’s degree in Political Science and his Master’s in Public Administration, with a concentration in local government management. He later received his law degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. Jason has continued to be engaged in the community. He is a member of the Southfield/Lathrup Democratic Club, Wolverine Bar Association, the ACLU of Michigan, and the Sierra Club.
