He was principal of Washington Elementary School, Vicentia Elementary School, Ben Franklin Elementary School, Lincoln Fundamental Elementary School, and at Highland Elementary School. He retired from the CNUSD after working for the school district for 40 years as a teacher and principal. He dedicated himself to providing his staff with the best environment for working with students and an excellent atmosphere for students to learn and grow socially and academically.
Jason reconnected with Karen (Henderson) Wuflestad after the two had not seen or spoken to one another for over 37 years. They can now be seen together at many community events. Karen was born in Corona, attended Corona schools, and graduated from Corona High School. She is a school counselor.

Jason still enjoys playing basketball with friends, a tradition that began about 40 years ago with six friends, and has grown to over 30 participants each weekend. Traveling and enjoying time with family and friends are things he loves.
