Unfortunately, the names of his parents have been omitted from his bio, but it is known that they divorced when Jason was only eight years old, and he moved in with his mother, while his older siblings went to live with their father. He went to Gordon Technical High School, from which he matriculated in 1982, upon which he enrolled at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, but after only a year decided that college wasn’t for him, and moved to Hollywood to pursue an acting career. His parents were the instruments in his education, as he enrolled in business studies instead of acting, which he adored. Nevertheless, he eventually fulfilled his dreams, and became a professional actor.

Almost immediately after moving to Hollywood, Jason secured his first role, though only an extra in the film “Bad Boys”, a thriller directed by Rick Rosenthal and starring Sean Penn, Reni Santoni and Jim Moody. However, it didn’t take long for Jason to start landing larger and popular roles, such as Lenny Barnes in the romantic comedy film “The Heavenly Kid” in 1985, co-starring Lewis Smith and Jane Kaczmarek.

Nothing changed for Jason as his primary focus were television series, but over the years he became one of many actors who lost themselves in so many roles, failing to secure a long-time engagement. He emerged in 2015 with the role of serial killer Raynard Waits in the TV series “Bosch”, and the same year was Liam Cullen in the TV fantasy drama series “Beauty & The Beast”, while from 2016 to 2017 he portrayed Mark Hickman in the TV series “Major Crimes”.
