Outside Nexsen Pruet

Jason has always had a passion (some would say obsession) for baseball. Growing up, when he wasn't playing baseball, he could be found watching it on television, looking through boxes of baseball cards to trade with friends, or reading issues of Beckett Baseball Card Monthly to get a better sense of precisely when that prized Ken Griffey, Jr. Upper Deck rookie would make him a millionaire.

As he progressed through Little League, he eventually came to the sad realization that he suffered from a Pedro Serrano-like aversion to breaking balls. After spending years trying to gain Jobu's affection with rum and cigars to no avail, he chose to pursue a different path on the diamond by becoming an umpire. He started as a Little League umpire while he was in high school and eventually spent the summers during his undergraduate years umpiring AAU, high school and men's semi-pro games.

While his parents understandably worried that a baseball diamond was not the best place to spend the summers trying to get ready for the “real world, ” Jason prefers to think of his time spent getting yelled at by irate coaches and parents as a form of very early “on-the-job training” for his future days as a litigator.

He and his wife, Jamaica, live in Raleigh with their three children.
