With a true passion for leadership and excellence in the hovercraft industry and its customers, Jason has been on the Board of Directors for the Hoverclub of America, a non - profit organization intended to further the advancement of Hovercraft throughout the U.S. and globally. Jason proudly served as Vice-President of the club for four years and as Forum Administrator for eight years. His hovercraft expertise is often sought for high visibility projects.

Slipstream Hover Technologies LLC

In 2005, Jason founded Slipstream Hover Technologies LLC, which specializes in parts for hovercraft. Although it was started with very little investment, it grew into the largest parts-only hovercraft company in the U.S.

The success of Slipstream was still driven primarily by three factors:

  • Providing a thorough, user-friendly online shopping experience - the first of its kind in the industry.
  • Leading the advancement of hovercraft technology in several key areas by releasing several groundbreaking new products.
  • Maintaining a focus on customer satisfaction above all else. Customers who buy from Slipstream know they’re buying a quality product that is proven, reliable and durable.

Hoverstream LLC

In December 2012, Jason formed Hoverstream LLC. While Slipstream continues to be a leader in hovercraft parts, Hoverstream has quickly become a leader in complete turnkey hovercraft. Hoverstream entered the market in 2013 with the Hoverstream Marlin (2-3 person) and the Hoverstream Coastal Pro (3-4 person). These hovercrafts are designed for the best possible price to performance ratio. Hoverstream produces one of the few manufactured hovercraft in the world available with four stroke engines, which offers significantly less noise with much higher fuel efficiency and reliability.  In 2015, together with The British Hovercraft Company, Hoverstream introduced the award winning Coastal Pro 2 design that was one of the best selling and in-demand hovercraft worldwide.

In 2024, Hoverstream continued its tradition of disrupting the hovercraft industry with innovative new products by releasing the highly anticipated EVOlution hovercraft. Utilizing the latest in advanced composites and cutting edge hovercraft technology, the EVOlution has again raised the bar and set a new standard for top tier light hovercraft.
