Jason proudly represents Colorado’s 6th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Jason serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the Small Business Committee, and he is honored to serve as Vice-Chair of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force and the National Security Task Force. Every day in Congress, Jason is fighting for common sense solutions for all Coloradans.
After the horrific 9/11 attacks, Jason served in the Army’s storied 82nd Airborne Division. As Jason matter-of-factly puts it, “I’ve just always been someone who goes where the fight is.” Jason soon found himself leading a platoon of paratroopers during the invasion of Iraq and earned the Bronze Star for his combat actions during the invasion.
When Jason returned to civilian life, he fought for veterans and chaired the committee that led the charge to bring the Denver Veterans Medical Center to Aurora. Jason dedicated hundreds of hours to mentoring veterans transitioning from military to civilian life and helping expand programs in Colorado addressing veteran’s substance abuse.
