He is a key stakeholder in the creation of their technology priorities and roadmaps, collaborates across GE Research disciplines to ensure program execution, and aligns funding and resources with the most critical needs. His primary focus over the last two years has been on delivering decarbonized power solutions that will enable GE to thrive in the energy transition.
Jason joined GE as part of GE Power in 2005, holding positions of increasing scope and responsibility in the Engineering function.

He later served as the lead propulsion flight test engineer for the Joint Strike Fighter (X-35) and the F-22. Just prior to joining GE, Jason was the systems integration leader for commercial engine development. He led a cross-functional team from Pratt & Whitney, GE, and various suppliers in the detailed planning and test execution of the first GP7000 prototype engine for the Airbus A380 passenger jet.
