“star in front of the camera for Channel 4’s prime-time hit show, SAS: Who Dares Wins.”
Jason joined the Royal Marine Commandos at 16, serving for 10 years, after which he passed the gruelling selection process for the Special Forces, serving with the Special Boat Service. He also trained as a combat swimmer, demolitions expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert. As part of his service, Jason planned and led operations including hostage rescue, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, maritime counter terrorism, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions.
He left the Special Forces in 2012, moving in to the TV and Film industry. Initially, he achieved this by using his wealth of experience in the Special Forces to support production crews who were working in environmentally hostile areas including the jungle, the arctic and the desert. It was during this period that Jason was one of the divers that found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd – one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century – just off the coast of Madagascar.
Jason has since gone on to star in front of the camera for Channel 4’s prime-time hit show, SAS: Who Dares Wins. The series, which has just released it’s third season, follows 30 men each season who are put through the SAS’s secret selection in the ultimate test of their physical and – more importantly – psychological resilience. The successful series has been praised for drawing in a significant share of young audiences and receiving critical acclaim.
