As FARE’s Vice President of Advocacy, Jason advocates on behalf of the food allergy community in front of Congress and federal agencies like the CDC, FDA, and NIH. Jason knows the challenges food allergy families face because he was born allergic to milk and tomatoes and remembers giving away most of his Halloween candy or watching his Mother search for substitute ingredients for his meals.
Jason comes to FARE with more than 25-years of advocacy experience including serving as a Chief of Staff or Senior Advisor to three members of Congress, managing successful political campaigns in every region of the country, and leading an award-winning public affairs rebranding effort at a global communications firm. In addition, Jason is an Adjunct Professor at Johns Hopkins University. Jason graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Syracuse University and earned a Master’s Degree at George Washington University. He lives in Maryland with his wife and their son, Jack.
