Jason joined President Lincoln’s Cottage in 2018 with over a decade of development experience. A native Ohioan, Jason attended The Ohio State University and started his career in 2008 at the Wexner Center for the Arts before entering political fundraising. While his clients ranged from a local judicial race to presidential campaigns, Jason specialized in Supreme Court elections and campaigns; by the end of 2014, he had successfully fundraised for 5 of the 7 sitting Justices on Ohio’s highest Court. Jason relocated to Washington, DC to join the Newseum as the Membership and Annual Outreach Manager, at the Bill of Rights Institute as Senior Development Officer, and most recently served as Manager of Individual Giving and Membership at the National Archives Foundation. At the Archives, Jason directed strategy for all individual giving, including the top tier membership program, the Signers Circle, grew new member joins by 26%, and secured major individual gifts in support of Rightfully Hers, the initiative to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
