Occupation: Student, but he was taking some time off to earn some money and get some direction in life
Hobbies: writing, DJing, making and listening to music, skiing, "charging," ice hockey, road trips, dancing (at clubs), and enjoying everything life had to offer
Other: Jason was just one of those people you couldn't stay mad at. He had a mulititude of friends from all over, and many younger students even idolized him. Jason loved everything about living, and it spread to the people around him. He almost always had a "grand plan," and, whatever it was at the time, he passionately believed he would accomplish it. He wanted to revolutionize the music industry and find "the one" to spend the rest of his life with.
