Jason has watched his son, Tristin, and other kids like him battling Neuroblastoma exhibit such strength, determination and strong will and he wanted to find something that would allow him to experience that in honor of them and he found it in IRONMAN Chattanooga 2014. Jason is from Chattanooga, TN and is a fire fighter for the City of Chattanooga.
Make-A-Wish® East Tennessee and Emily’s Power for a Cure have supported Jason and his family through their quest with Tristin’s life-threatening condition. Make-A-Wish® East Tennessee granted Tristin’s wish to go to Bora Bora recently and Emily’s Power for a Cure has been supporting them from day one of Tristin’s diagnosis. Jason and his family have experienced first hand the power of a wish and the many clinical trials that Tristin has been involved with are funded by organizations like Emily’s Power for a Cure; therefore, Jason simply wanted to give back to two local organizations that have helped him and his family so much.
