Resume: 
Jason was a scout in Troop 8 for seven years, from 2008 to 2015. He is unsure if he is actually an Assistant Scoutmaster, but at this point is too afraid to ask. Jason is a student at the University of Michigan, studying everything from English Language and Literature, to Ecology, and Russian, and hopes that all of that will somehow get him into medical school. When he grows up, he hopes to be a pediatrician, as he likes working with children. (Hence his continuing involvement with Troop 8.)
