"A first round draft pick...stellar"  Jason was a first round draft choice when we recruited him to come to Syracuse to attend graduate school. He did not leave early for the pros and contributed mightily as a teaching assistant and project colleague while at SU. His work record since graduation has been stellar with multiple ventures as joint presenter and collaborator with SU colleagues. Would we recruit him again as a point guard--you bet.

 "A numbers guy and valued thought partner"  As a researcher, Jason's known as a numbers guy. That made him a valued thought-partner for me when thinking about my work with education leaders at ACE Leadership High School in Albuquerque, NM. What I appreciated most, however, is that he gets that numbers don't just tell THE story, but are best used to collaborate with clients working to tell THEIR story. Wonder what your work is really about? Jason will help generate the research to find out.
