Jason is a long time CrossFit gym owner, operating Steel Mill Fitness out of Jacksonville. He is involved with multiple businesses, has a law enforcement background and saw the opportunity of team ownership as a great intersection of his skills and interests. He states of the opportunity:
“I saw this as a chance to bring my fitness community in Jacksonville together. While I do really believe in the direction of the League and sport overall, more importantly I want to bring people together to put in work, have fun, compete, cheer, and represent our great city.”
