jay jay with his balloon machine gun A graduate of The New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Management Information Systems, Jason hase worked in corporate America for the past 20 years at such noted companies as AT&T, American Express, Sony, Panasonic, Nexus, The Bank of NY, National Community Bank of NJ, Hill and Knowlton, J. Walter Thompson, assorted law firms, and the list goes on and on. He's taught thousands of computer training classes in Microsoft and Lotus Applications to hundreds of thousands of students since 1987 and has written over 100 computer technical training manuals. And that was all just during the week.

It finally became clear that entertaining only on weekends just wouldn't do. His computer training classes became infused with such an entertaining flair that everyone could see his true calling clearly reached far beyond the world of PC training. On weekends he was a busy professional "ON AIR" radio Disc Jockey and a "Mobile" DJ for hundreds of weddings and private parties with over 20 years of experience. He proudly touts the distinction as the most requested wedding DJ on the east coast for SOUND DECISION WEDDING DJ's for 2 years in a row before he finally branched out on their own. Deciding to live out his dreams 24-7 since 9/2001, he left the warm financial security of corporate computer training classrooms for a full time career as an independent children's entertainer. He can now usually be found blowing soap bubbles or practicing balloon twisting making his amazing new original balloon creations.

Jason is now an Award Winning Balloon Artist and Certified Bubble-ologist bringing tons of smiles and joy to parties all over the tri-state area with his appearances as a Balloon Artist and performing his new interactive bubble magic show which is really driving the kids wild.

In August of 2010 Jason was invited to become an official member of "SAG" (Screen Actors Guild) and has been seen on both the small and big screen in such hit movies as Mr. Popper's Penguins, Premium Rush, Being Flynn, The Amazing Spiderman 2, and in the yet to be released My Man Is A Loser starring John Stamos (Uncle Jessie from Full House).

Jason has been seen 16 times on Law and Order SVU episodes and has a long list of appearances on other TV shows including: Glee, The Big C, Nurse Jackie, Bored to Death, SMASH!, and in the upcoming as of yet untitled Tina Fey TV Pilot for her follow up to 30 Rock this fall.
