Jason was born in WA and lived there until he was eight years old when he moved with his mother to Victoria. An incredibly well spoken and intelligent young man, Jason got complacent when he was younger and thinks his attitude stopped him from succeeding. Proud of his indigenous heritage, Jason spends a lot of time volunteering with multiple charities, including mentoring young indigenous kids, and would like to study in areas such as youth work and health and fitness. The apprentice plumber is very confident that he can win the Recruit in 2016 – “All I’ve ever needed in my life is a chance, and if I get that chance I honestly think I can win it”. He has many AFL heroes, including Shaun Burgoyne, Adam Goodes, Andrew McLeod and Michael O’Loughlin.
