Early in his career he served as a public defender in Multnomah and Deschutes County, and then served 15 years as a Deputy District Attorney in Deschutes County.

Jason has served as an elected member of  the Oregon State Bar House of Delegates and currently serves as State Representative for House District 54 in Bend.
