About SSG Jason Wilcox
Jason grew up in Solon, IA where he varsity lettered in Football, Basketball, Track and Baseball. Jason loved to play golf, ski and hike.
Jason joined the Army after he had gone to college for almost 2 years. He was stationed with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, and they deployed to Bermel, Afghanistan from January 2006 to May 2007. Upon his return he was stationed at Fort Carson with the 4th ID. He was unable to deploy due to several shoulder and back surgeries and was given the opportunity to work with the Warrior Transition Battalion as a Squad Leader. He managed a team of 10-12 wounded warriors assigned specially for complex medical care. He then was assigned a position as a Contract Specialist (DoD Initiative for Wounded Warriors) at Petersen AFB. All the while he was also completing his BA degree in Business Administration.
Unable to be deployed, he decided that he would be medically discharged from the Army. This was a very tough decision for him because he loved being in the Army. He wanted to still be working for the soldiers he so dearly loved. He was offered a position as a Recovery Care Coordinator for the US Army as a consultant of MANCON. As a AW2 Advocate, Jason was a coordinator for recovery plans for up to 65 soldiers - he helped them navigate through their medical transition. Jason worked with soldiers and veterans by helping them locate adequate housing, jobs, assistance with grants, assistance with VA healthcare, and he provided them the knowledge of their entitled benefits. He loved what he could do for these warriors and veterans. Jason worked diligently to make sure they had what they needed and the resources. Jason was well respected by his peers and Commanding Officers. Shared by his mother, Janeen
