He grew up in the Martin School district and currently resides on Stephanies Way with his wife Heather and his 14 year old son Edward ("Teddy"), a Freshman at MHS and 12 year old son Charlie, a 7th grader at Illing. He is an attorney with the firm of Gagliardi Doucette.
Jason is currently seeking his second term as State Representative for the 13th House District (Manchester, Glastonbury). In a short time, he has already distinguished himself as an effective legislator with a long list of legislative accomplishments and as a strong advocate for Manchester and Glastonbury in Hartford. In 2019, he stepped up to serve as the acting Chair of the Banking Committee, something a first-year representative had never done, and helped write and pass bills crumbling foundations and student loan debt. He also serves as a member of the Finance Revenue & Bonding Committee and the Higher Education & Workforce Development Committee.
He is a proud Democrat and has a long record of civic involvement in Manchester, having served on the Board of Directors (Town Council), Workforce Development Commission, Planning and Zoning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, School Modernization and Revitalization Committee (SMARTR 1), and Redevelopment Agency, among many others. While in law school at UConn, he served as a law clerk at the Connecticut General Assembly for the House Majority Leader. He has also been a coach for Manchester Little League for several years, a volunteer with the Highland Park School PTA, is a past President (and alumnus) of CAST Children's Theatre, and has been known to moonlight as a drummer or guitarist in local rock and blues bands.
