About Jason

Former submarine officer with 8 years of corporate experience as a systems engineer. Worked both in and out of the defense industry before finding my calling at Northrop Grumman. Also spent 3 years drilling on weekends with the Navy Reserve as an Engineering Duty Officer. My transition off active duty was exciting, depressing, and frustrating and I want to help those going through or about to go through similar transitions to make it less negative and more positive!
