Jason met Casey in Kodiak and has kept in touch over the years. When the Alpine Cove changed management Jason jumped at an opening on the Cornelia Marie. The fishing community stays close and Jason already knew most of the Cornelia crew.
Jason returns for his second season aboard the Cornelia Marie. After last year's many mechanical issues, he's hoping for a smooth operation this time around.
He's had lots of fishing experience, so he knows that even with a solid boat and a solid crew, problems are going to arise. He's just hoping that Josh can continue to make the right decisions to keep the crew safe and their wallets full.
You can always look to Jason for a good laugh on deck.
