Jayson was born September 4, 1974 in Columbus, Ohio. Over time, his family moved to Tampa, Florida, where he spent much of his childhood and young adult life. He attended Ballast Point Elementary, Madison Middle School, and Robinson High School, all the while earning principal's honor roll and maintaining that academic record all the way through. Jayson was also a member of FBLA and National Honor Society during his high school years and had a heavy interest in aeronautical studies and space shuttles. He spent 20+ years plus serving as a prominent member of the team Verizon Wireless and eventually transitioned into a director position of the fraud prevention department. In his free time he studied for and earned his pilot license. After earning his pilot license, he’d fly planes leisurely, which easily became one of his favorite things to do. He used to love visiting Cape Canaveral for Space Shuttle launches as well. Jayson was a gamer at heart and he was also very much into sci-fi related things like Star Trek and the like. He loved his family and friends dearly and always sought to take care of everyone in need.
