"Full of energy, Jason is not the sort of person to sit back and let someone else do the work.  He volunteers his time freely – he wears many hats through his association with the East Tamar Landcare Group, George Town Coastal Communities Action Group, George Town Destination Action Plan Leadership Group, and is the Lulworth representative on the George Town Safety Committee.  In all of these roles, Jason gives 100% commitment and devotes much of his time and resources."
