Board Member

Jason Johnson has called Eugene home since 2006. An avid outdoorsman, he spends much of his time chasing trout and bass on the rivers, streams, lakes and ponds of Oregon. He also travels frequently to fly fish waters across the US. Winter and Fall find him pursuing big game in Eastern Oregon or hunting fowl with his chocolate lab, Bourbon. Jason began his work life as an Army Officer in the 25 th Infantry Division, but has spent the past 23 years working in the high tech industry. He currently runs a group of US-based software companies for JDM Technology Group, based in Vancouver, BC. An active nonprofit leader, Jason served previously as Executive Director and board member for the Furthur Down the Road Foundation, a nonprofit organization “devoted to restoring and preserving author Ken Kesey’s original Furthur bus.” He has also served on the board of Rivers of Recovery, a nonprofit dedicated to helping combat veterans heal through fly fishing. Jason holds an MBA from UCLA, and an MA in English literature from East Tennessee State University, where he wrote his master’s thesis, “Zen for Americans,” on Gary Snyder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning volume of poetry, Turtle Island. He currently lives in downtown Eugene with his wife Sulwyn.
