The position of Players' Representative is not only a brilliant launching pad for the athlete who wants to become renown on a national level, but also for those who want to get ahead on an international level too.
In 2017 IESF's Athletes Commission elected Jason to be the Chairperson of such Commission. As the Chairperson of the Athletes' Commission, Jason too sits on IESF's Board and represents the interests of all players/athletes directly to the very highest levels of esports.
