My name is Jason Robert Smith born September 11th, 1984, at 10:43am to LaLoni Renae Smith and Robert George Smith III in Centralia Washington. For the first few years of my life, I lived in a Train Caboose as My father was working on a chain gang for Burlington Norther Railroad. I grew up in and around trains.
I started my employment journey at the ripe age of 13, working summers and school breaks at my friend’s family auto wrecking yard, and a few years after that, I worked as a construction laborer until I graduated from high school. From there I worked for places like Subway, Safeway grocery store, Starbucks and I was even an appl buddy at Applebee’s. Around the age of 21 I became a resident firefighter at my local fire department. That started my 15-year career in public safety where I obtained my EMT license and Paramedic Licenses. Once I became a paramedic, I left the great state of Washington and moved all the way to Yuma, Arizona and began my career as a paramedic with a very healthy salary of $10.50 an hour. For the next decade I served the citizens of Yuma, Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Glendale, Goodyear, Avondale, and many others around the valley. I ran on well over 20,000 emergency calls for help. One day I was approached by my good buddy and fellow Team Fischer teammate, Troy, who asked me, “Jason, why the hell are you killing yourself in this job?” That question was the catalyst for me making the greatest career change I have ever made. I have been with fairway since September 2020.
I’m currently with a very special lady who I absolutely love and adore. Were currently raising a 10-week-old Golden Doodle named Winston. He is cool other than when he barks, poops and pees on the floor and chews on my things. Other than that, I’m certain I’m with my soul mate and the verdict is still out on the puppy.
When I have time off, I tend to travel, go to live events (25 concerts lined up for this year) show off my grill master status, hang with my friends and family, try new things and live every breath to the fullest.
What I’m looking forward to in my professional career is the ability to help my clients with home ownership, as well as my providing my agents with great service. I am also grateful to have the opportunity to plan for retirement. I look forward to living out my remaining years happy, healthy, and whole. I’m appreciative of my days as a paramedic to get me to where I am now.
