But before enrolling at UW-Stevens Point, Jason played for one year in Iceland and participated in the 2005 Euro Cup. As a collegiate basketball player, Jason won a couple of NCAA Divison III titles and three conference titles.
In 2005, Jason was named the NCAA Division III National Player of the Year and also earned the honor of the Final Four’s MVP. After a successful playing career, Jason was inducted into UWSP’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010.
Jason’s coaching career began with UWSP as a volunteer coach and two years as a graduate assistant. In 2008, Jason joined the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay as an assistant basketball coach, where he coached for two seasons.
It was in Toledo that Jason’s coaching career rose. He joined the Rockets in 2010. In his third season, the Rockets posted a school-record 27 games victory, which at the time ranked fourth in Mid-American Conference history.
It was also the season Toledo won its eighth league regular-season title. After eight successful seasons with Toledo, Jason bid the team goodbye.

Jason and Allie tied the knot on August 31, 2013, and have kept their relationship away from the public limelight. Jason has kept his Instagram handle private, and though Allie regularly posts, it is rarely about her love life.
