Most people spent a certain amount of time during the height of the pandemic locked down, just trying to get by under extraordinary circumstances. JB Jaso found himself near Fort Bragg in North Carolina, having time to take care of himself for the first time in nearly 20 years. That’s when he knew it was time to retire from the military and move on with his life.
And yet, no sooner had he made that decision that he learned what ‘real’ isolation was like, with no mission, no unit, and no one to establish his values for him.
Today, JB Jaso is the Assistant Manager for Security with the Los Angeles Angels, a Veteran and retiree of the United States Army, and a volunteer leader with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. He recently joined Veteran Voices co-hosts Scott Luton and Mary Kate Soliva from Vets2Industry to speak about:
• His active search for a post-military purpose, and how he finally discovered a unique ‘why’ that would allow him to follow his passion for sports
• Why it is so important for every Veteran to own his or her own transition from the military into civilian life
• The health condition that unexpectedly touched his life and gave him yet another reason to put his leadership skills to the test
