Many thanks are given to his ingenuity with software development.
On August 27, 2011 Jason married Dana Drew Varin of Palatine Bridge, NY. Together they established their home in Homer, NY where they cultivated 20 acres of land to include over 3 miles of immaculate walking trails. On September 29, 2020 Dana and Jason welcomed their son, Van Howard Hogan, into the world. Jason was the most dedicated and tenderhearted father and husband.
