Technical Advisor for Anti-Human Trafficking, Salvation Army World Service OfficeLocation: USA

These projects have included preventing trafficking of families on the Mexican border and helping women who have been trafficked to the middle east return to their home countries.

In 1995, he visited the Republic of Georgia during a time when conflicts in the Caucuses were heavily debated, hotels were full with internally displaced people, and the economy was struggling to survive. Yet, the will of the people remained strong. In 2008, he visited south China and saw villages where all women had been trafficked out, where one woman’s face remains etched in his mind. She had returned to the villages, started tree farms and renewed hope and stability for many. In 2014 he met Jane, a woman with five children in western Kenya, who lost her husband but found strength to begin her own business and empower others. Marked by his encounters of hope and poverty, Jason longed to play a role in helping faith triumph over discouragement.
