Jason is a loving, devoted, and dependable partner. While he is more introverted than I am, his warm heart and deeply caring nature make him the perfect partner for me. He is my constant source of support. He is responsible and practical, but also a lot of fun. After more than 16 years together, I cannot imagine my life without him.

Why Jason will make a great dad: I look up to Jason. He’s super smart, intensely curious, and I’m constantly learning from him. As a dad, I know he’ll foster this same sense of adventure and curiosity in our child, and I know our child will love him, learn from him, and look up to him just as I do.
