He constructed a Halloween costume for a patient that was bound to a wheelchair. He wrote a note in the snow that one of the patients could see in from his window. Beyond his countless contributions to the hospital, Jason also volunteers for numerous organizations such as the Right to Read Program for I Know I Can, the mid-Ohio Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity and the Charity Newsies.

“I was the initial interviewer when Jason called Gilbane looking to come back to Ohio. I was impressed from that initial conversation because of the passion he has for his family, community and career,” said Larry Mastella, Senior Director of Business Development “Since that initial conversation, Jason has exceeded all of my expectations. He is a rising star in our organization and what he gives back to our community helps to inspire us all.”
