3Years CHECK Team Leader
16YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Jason is a no fail worker who has an enormous amount of potential. He is distinguished himself in multiple skills, including computer information science, project management and engineering. He is a young genius and should be considered for any position. I highly recommend Jason for any position. His skills were brought to the attention of General David Petraeus and multiple other General Officers in the NATO Theatre of Afghanistan. Jason was responsible for the completion of many missions in Afghanistan. Jason is a true warrior and I do not make this recommendation lightly.
