Surfer | Retired Navy SEAL Command Master Chief | CEO, Randori Inc.
Jason recently retired after a 27-year career as a U.S. Navy SEAL, with the last decade of his career spent as a Command Master Chief. His final assignment saw him as the CMC of Naval Special Warfare Group ONE; a 2000-person organization of SEALs, Sailor, and Government employees responsible for executing U.S. National Security Strategy in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Middle East, Korea and the Pacific.
Jason's crowning achievement over that time-frame was remaining happily married over 20 years and having a family, despite the endless demands put on Naval Special Warfare. Through Randori Inc., Jason is continuing his service by pursuing a desire to bring out the best in individuals, leaders, and organizations to ensure they reach their fullest potential.
In 2005 while deployed to Baghdad, Iraq as the senior enlisted advisor for a NSW Task Unit, Jason first met U.S. Special Operations Iraqi interpreter "Johnny Walker" and they became as close as brothers working side by side on numerous missions targeting Al Qaeda cell members. Before re-deploying back to Coronado, Jason asked Johnny to consider coming to the US. A few months later, with Johnny and his family’s lives under constant threat from Al Qaeda and other extremists, he took Jason up on his offer. That led to a 3 ½ year struggle to get them safely out of Iraq and to the United States to live out their American Dream.
Jason has a Bachelor of Science in Administration and Management for Excelsior College and is currently on a full scholarship for a Masters of Science in Management from the American College of Financial Services.
