- BA Religious Education, Marian University and Masters of Divinity at Catholic Theological Union
Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Jason attended Marian University in Indianapolis (also Franciscan), where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Religious Education. After graduation he joined the Capuchin Franciscans and was in formation with them until discerning to leave in 2017. During this time he provided ministry at the Newman Center at the University of Illinois in Chicago. It was here that his passion for campus ministry began. He also attended the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago where he earned his Masters of Divinity.
The Franciscan way of life has always played an important role in Jason’s life and he is excited to be able to call Briar Cliff his new home. Jason approaches ministry by meeting people where they are, no matter their faith tradition or background. He strongly believes that we all come to the table with different experiences, traditions, gifts and passions and it’s this diversity which makes a strong community.
In his free time Jason enjoys reading, hanging out at coffee shops, spending time with his dog Jackson, and watching Notre Dame football.
