Jason Askew was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. He grew up as both a local (all things Cleveland) sports junkie and a passionate participant. His early childhood memories include rooting for the likes of Andre Thornton, World B. Free, and Ozzie Newsome.
His most memorable times include taking the Laketran to Lakeland Community College and patrolling the fences for autographs at Browns training camp. The worst include stories that have already sucked enough life out of us and contain names including, but not limited to, Jordan, Elway, and Renteria.
As a youth his Northeast Ohio memories also boast sharing the field and/or court with future pros like Earl Boykins, Joe Jurevicius, London Fletcher, and Matthew Hatchette.
After 6 years in the Navy and 3 years living in NY, he returned his family to their Northeast Ohio roots in 2003 and now lives in Lake County with his wife and two children.
Jason works as a field service engineer for a company in the semiconductor industry. When he isnâ€™t at work making computer chips, trolling boards, researching player bios, looking at box scores and listening to or watching a sporting event, he enjoys spending time with his family and watching his daughter leave her imprint on the local sports scene.
