Jason (Jaz) is from Iowa and joined the Navy right out of high school. He was a Mess Management Specialist and served on board the ammunition supply ship, the USS Haleakala AE-25 and was stationed in Guam. During his time on board the Haleakala, he was deployed and served in Operation Desert Storm. 

Jen (Snapshot) is from Pennsylvania and joined the Navy a few years after high school. She was an Operations Specialist and also served on board the USS Haleakala, where she met Jason

Jen and Jason have been married for 25 years and have two grown sons, Tyler & Chase and the two most adorable twin grand-daughters in the world. They also have four dogs and a cat and 6 grandpups. 

Jason has been riding since the age of 14 and currently rides a 1993 HD Dyna Low Rider. Jen started riding in 2008 and her current ride is a 2003 HD Dyna Low Rider.  Their boys caught the riding bug at an early age and started riding Sportsters at the age of 14 and 16, and the family rode to Sturgis for Tyler's Graduation trip and to the Milwaukee 110th for Chase's trip. Jen & Jason moved to Tennessee in 2014 to escape the frigid and snowy winters of Iowa.

Jason's roadname is “Jaz” because that is what everyone called him on the ship. Jen's roadname is “Snapshot” because she enjoys taking photos and has become the (non-professional) Chapter Photographer. Jason joined CVMA 18-3 in October 2017 and Jen joined in December 2017.   When talking to others about CVMA 18-3, they are sure to tell them that our group filled a huge void that was left when they moved from their friends in Iowa.
