Jason White proudly lives by the Marine Corps motto honor -courage -commitment. He was born in New Haven Connecticut. Was in foster care and parents passed away when he was 6 and 8. He was adopted by a Marine at the age of 5. At the age of 16, moved to the great state of Florida where he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2004 at the age of 18. Jason served two combat deployments and was injured on his last tour of duty by an improvised explosive device (IED). He was honorably discharged after nearly 10 years of service as a Sergeant. Jason still calls Florida home and enjoy spending time with his two beautiful children. “Once a Marine, always a Marine” stands true as Jason continues to serve the community as the director of the Birdwell Foundation for PTSD, Florida chapter. A nonprofit organization dedicated to decreasing and eliminating suicide in veterans, first responders and their families. As well he serves as the president and CEO of Warrior Wheels foundation which was birthed out of the loss of a fellow veteran. And now the Warrior Wheels foundation donates motorcycles cars and trucks to veterans and first responders while supporting the efforts of the Birdwell Foundation for PTSD in other local community organizations.
