He has adapted to staff changes around him in a way that hasn't hindered the high level of service he gives his clients. Jason handles people of all temperaments well with his thoughtful, honest and committed approach to helping them with whatever problem they might be experiencing. Jason is quick to respond to help requests, which might very well be an in-person visit to your office. He makes each person feel important and will certainly go out of his way to help others. In his job, he keeps us operating at full tech capacity. We would be lost without him.”

The award, in its 14th year, was established by the Chancellor’s Office and is co-sponsored by the University Staff Senate.
