For over twenty-five years, Jason has held positions within the Risk and Insurance Industry that exponentially increased his knowledge base and value to the field. As a member of the United States Marine Corps, Jason learned early on the value of dedication, loyalty, and teamwork.
Soon after being honorably discharged in 1997, Jason entered the insurance and risk management industry as security for the San Bernardino Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board. From there, he gained a new interest in claims investigations, fraud, and insurance defense. That interest led to becoming a Surveillance and Field Investigator, where Jason worked numerous high value claims, securing facts and evidence that were vital to claims adjudication and trials.
As a licensed California Workers’ Compensation claims examiner at Crum & Forster, Jason personally handled hundreds of lost-time claims, from slip and fall incidents to traumatic brain injuries. In 2007, he identified a jurisdictional issue on a misfiled claim that led to a $300,000 savings.
Jason focuses on bringing a consultative approach to his endeavors, having critical exposure and development experiences in the fields of investigations, Medicare Compliance, insurance claims management, and national brand management. Having been a speaker at over two hundred presentations, Jason enjoys the opportunity to teach and engage provocative thought and learning in others.
