Jason leads The Glover Park Group’s Research Division, providing public opinion research, message development and issue advocacy expertise. Working for a range of clients from the UN Foundation, JPMC, PhRMA, the A&E Network and the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network, Jason helps clients develop communication and advocacy outreach strategies, core messaging and brand positioning through the use of the most up to date quantitative and qualitative public opinion research methods – including digital and social research – being employed today.
Prior to joining GPG, Jason was the Director of National Advocacy at the Center for U.S. Global Engagement, and before that was the National Deputy Political Director at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). At both the Center and at AIPAC, Jason helped provide political guidance and to both cultivate and grow “grass tops” advocacy, encouraging citizen activists to become involved in the political process by engaging and challenging candidates for public office to more prominently and specifically speak out in support of those issues for which each organization advocated.
Jason started his public opinion research career at the Democratic polling firm Global Strategy Group. While working for both political and non-political clients, Jason learned how to apply basic and advanced research principles, as well as an urgency unique to political research, to better understand what affects consumers’ decisions and motivates their actions.
A native of South Carolina, Jason received his BA in International Studies at the University of South Carolina, and studied one year at the Rothberg School at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel before going on to receive an MA in Political Science from Columbia University.
He lives in Rockville, MD with his wife and two daughters.
