About Jason

Born and raised as a third-generation Truckee local Jason knows the ins and outs of the North Lake Tahoe-Truckee community. His unique local knowledge mixed with impeccable service was gleaned from over 15 years as a PGA Class A Golf Professional. Growing up in Tahoe, Jason was fortunate enough to excel in many of the area’s activities including golf and skiing. A coach at heart, Jason finds it truly rewarding and motivating to help others enjoy and succeed on the course and on the mountain. Jason attended Arizona State University's Professional Golf management program and upon graduation quickly moved back home. After many successful years working as a Golf Professional in the Tahoe area, Jason felt the itch to travel. Now with four trips to the south Pacific under his belt, Jason has created long-lasting friendships and connections in the South Island of New Zealand. Even while traveling, it was a priority for Jason to stay in touch with his professional Tahoe connections knowing that eventually, he’d return home. Along with his wife Drew and two young boys, Jason has settled in Truckee and can say without any ambiguity, “I am home.”
