In the words of wife, Kourtney, “Jason has grown to become the best air guitar player, the most creative block-tower builder, the most efficient blow-out cleaner upper, and above all, the calm and fun piece to our parenting puzzle. He is the MVP of living room football and the most faithful bedtime prayergiver I could have ever imagined for my child. Between the long hours of working, the spilled goldfish in the car seat, the dreams for our future, and the endless runs to the store for diapers (and wine), I don’t share with him often enough, but he is our hero, and he makes it look good.”

Dad to Walker, 19 months
What is the best part about being a dad?
One of the highlights of every day for me is walking through the door after a long day at work and my son running up to me with a huge smile, yelling “DADA!”
Do you have any special “dad” routines?
I wake my son up every morning and get him out of his crib. Every time he hears the doorknob moving he jumps up with a tired smile and is ready to start the day.
What part of parenting scares you the most?
It scares me that there will be a day that I will not be around to help guide him through life.
What is your most memorable “dad” moment?
My most memorable dad moment was when my son said “Dad” and looked right at me for the first time.
What has been the funniest parent moment so far?
Looking back, it would have to be the start of our recent trip to Sea World. We left home early in the morning with a brand new “big boy” car seat and a newly detailed car. We got about 10 minutes from the house and our son got carsick — everywhere. At the time it was not funny, but once all the mess was cleaned up (delaying our trip a couple hours) we laughed several times about it on the way down to Sea World.
Which TV or movie dad are you most like?
Do you have a special meal you cook?
Describe your parenting style in 3 words.
Flexible, loving and structured.
What is something you learned from your dad that you want to make sure you do?
I want to instill a love of the outdoors in my children. It has been a huge part of my life. I grew up spending almost every weekend with my dad on the water or in the woods. I have learned many life lessons and enjoyed many irreplaceable memories in the outdoors and want the same for my children.
What is one superhero power you wish you had to help with parenting?
Flying would be nice. It would certainly help keep my kids occupied and entertained.
What is the one thing that you hope your child/children learn from you?
I hope that my children learn that hard work and determination paired with sound morals and honesty are what will make you successful in all aspects of life.
