A graduate of Arnprior District High School (go Redmen!), Jason has never strayed too far from home in his professional career. For more than two decades he’s reported, written, edited and managed community newspapers across the Valley and Ottawa including: Renfrew, Arnprior, West Carleton, Almonte, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, Perth, Kemptville, Iroquois, Manotick, Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville, Bells Corners, Orleans and Ottawa in general.
Is it any wonder he has grey whiskers sprouting on his chin?
But one thing has never changed no matter where he has worked – his home and heart are in the Valley.
Now, only a 10-minute commute to the office from downtown White Lake (15 if he gets behind a hay wagon or a school bus), Jason is back where he belongs – out in the communities of the Valley, working for a company that is all about entertaining and informing people about what’s happening in their little piece of the world.
And when he meets someone and says: “G’day, hower yanow?” – they actually know what in the hell he’s talking about.
