Last summer our CEO Joe Waters joined Jason for a public conversation hosted by AIR Serenbe in Atlanta about growing up, his work, and his aspirations for our common future. You can now watch that conversation produced by Georgia Public Broadcasting.

AIR Serenbe, as part of Filmer in 2018, commissioned filmmaker Kristian Melom to make a short documentary on Jason. This film, “dear, dreamer”, has been selected to premiere on opening night (April 4) of the Atlanta Film Festival at The Plaza Theater in Atlanta. More information and tickets available here.
