Jason was born in Pittsburgh in 1974 and moved to Chicago in 1997. He had a weekly op/ed column in the Chicago Tribune’s Red Eye newspaper for 10 years titled “Boy on Boystown” where he talked about relationships and sex in the gay community, made snarky comments, and probably some outdated observations. His favorite band is Depeche Mode and thanks to his music-aficionado partner he listens to more than just 80s.
