Jason grew up with an entrepreneurial father and spent many years working in the pharmaceutical industry. He was ready for a change when he was laid off in early 2010. Jason discovered Unlimited Future’s eight-week course, Planning for Profit, which kick-started his business launch🚀. Jason worked with Ursulette Huntley throughout the course and shared his experience, “It is hard to find people that passionate about teaching others, Unlimited Future is a good resource for people getting started and if they do not know the answer they will point you in the right direction.”

Jason opened One-Stop Rental shortly after completing the Planning for Profit course. One-Stop Rentals is an advertising business that simplifies the rental process. However, Jason’s passion for food led him to start a second business Southside Sliders a mobile food truck.🚚 Jason quickly gained a customer base with good food that appealed to a wide audience and grew the business into a Huntington destination. In 2019, Jason purchased a G.D. Ritzy restaurant on Hal Greer Boulevard an icon of nostalgia in Huntington. He made sure to keep the menu and 1950s-themed restaurant to honor the history of the establishment.
