Having joined the Royal Marines at 16, and going on to complete the gruelling selection process for the Special Forces, Jason had a military career lasting 20 years, the vast majority serving in a specialist military unit. He took part in operations including hostage rescue, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, maritime counter terrorism, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions.

Jason moved into the TV and Film industry, initially using his wealth of experience in the Special Forces to support production crews who were working in environmentally hostile areas, such as the jungle, the Arctic or the desert. It was during this period that Jason was part of the team of divers who found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd – one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century – just off the coast of Madagascar.

Jason released his first book ‘Battle Scars’ – the Sunday Times Bestseller in 2018 which tells the account of his ‘rise, fall and recovery’ in the military as an elite operator. His second book, ‘Life Under Fire: How to Build Inner Strength and Thrive Under Pressure’ will be released in hardback on the 15th October 2020. Having overcome more than his fair share of emotional and mental conflicts, Life Under Fire will share the tools Jason has developed at the cutting edge of an elite military career and show how to build resilience and inner strength to overcome life’s challenges.

Charity work is also something close to Jason’s heart, he holds a new world record for rowing across the Atlantic in aid of the NSPCC and in 2018 trekked to the North Pole for Borne charity. Jason is also co-founder of the charity Rock 2 Recovery, which helps support distressed servicemen, veterans and their families, and an ambassador for Veterans 4 Wildlife for the prevention of wildlife crime. Last summer, Jason also completed an epic 2000-mile charity expedition across Alaska and the river Yukon, raising money for Rock 2 Recovery.
