Jason went to Brookwood High School, located in Snellville, Georgia USA, where he excelled in football, track and swimming as well, however in football he had the best results and earned first-team all-county honors and second-team all-state. After matriculating he enrolled at the University of Hawaii and played as a placekicker, recording 397 points, which brought him third place in the NCAA`s history, and the leader in field goals scored in the history of the University, among other records he set, before he graduated with a degree in communications.
Jason then entered the 1993 NFL Draft, and was selected as the 70th overall pick by the Denver Broncos, where he stayed until 2008, when he signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons. In his rookie season, Jason posted 119 points out of 26 kicks from 35 attempts. He continued successfully, posting over 100 points in every season with the Broncos, making the career high is 1995, when he had 132 points – 31 goals from 38 attempts. Great performances brought new contracts for him from the Broncos headquarters, which increased his net worth to a large degree. While at Denver, he was selected three times for the Pro Bowl game, in 1995, 1998 and 2001, while he was also named into First Team All-Pro three times, and won two Super Bowl Championships. Also, he posted or tied several records, including for the longest kick at 63 yards, tying with such legends as Sebastian Janikowski, David Akers and Tom Dempsey. He also became the fastest player in NFL to reach 1,300 points, in 170 games, and led the NFL in Total Field Goals Made with 31 in 2001.
After the 2007 season ended, his contract with the Broncos expired, and he then signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons, worth $9 million over four years, which increased further his net worth, however, after a bad season in which he made only 8 out of 15 field goal attempts, he was waived by the team.
He then signed a one-day contract with his ‘home’ team, and retired as a Bronco on the 30th March 2010.
After retirement, Jason tried himself as a writer, and published three books; his first book came out in 2008, entitled “Monday Night Jihad”, and the same year he published “Blown Coverage”, with a year later his third book “Blackout” being released. The sales of the books certainly increased further his net worth.
Regarding his personal life, Jason is married to Tammy, and the couple has four sons and two daughters. Most recently, he bought an island home in Sitka, Alaska, where he currently resides with his family.
