I first met Jason in Baghdad, Iraq, when I was the Staff Judge Advocate for Multi-National Corps – Iraq and Jason was serving with Multi-National Division – Central. Jason immediately impressed me for his leadership abilities and calmness under pressure. Years later, Jason served as Commander of the JAG School’s Student Detachment when I was the Commanding General for The Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School. Again, Jason’s leadership and capacity to make difficult decisions was on full display as he masterfully navigated one of the toughest jobs for a company grade officer in our JAG Corps. It was this steadfast, reliable, and unwavering ability that earned Jason the Army’s Young Lawyer of the Year Award.
