Jason Klump

B.S. with distinction, University of Wisconsin, Economics

Jason was born and raised in Wilton, CT where he graduated from high school in 2002. He briefly attended Wake Forest University in North Carolina before enrolling at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he received his B.S. in economics and political science in the winter of 2005 after only five semesters.

He was then offered and accepted an academic scholarship to attend the Quinnipiac University School of Law, finishing in 2009. During his time in law school, Jason concentrated in Constitutional and criminal law and worked in the public defender’s office of New Haven, CT. Though he initially considered a career as a member of the criminal defense bar, his time in law school and with the public defender turned him off to those in the legal profession, the justice system as a whole, and the prison industrial complex. He left school prior to graduation and never sat for the bar.

Jason took a year off after law school which he spent traveling the country with his dog. He then lived in Brewster on Cape Cod until 2015. He was an elected member of the town’s zoning board and held several different jobs.¬†While there, he began his career as a baseball umpire and soccer referee in 2013 at the high school level. Jason played baseball all the way through college and then had several jobs as a broadcaster and official scorer with college and pro teams during law school. Ultimately, he wanted to get back on the field and be in the action.

Wanting more land and privacy than the Cape offered, Jason moved to Whitingham in the summer of 2015, setting off a set of serendipitous events. Shortly thereafter, he was hired at Mount Snow Academy to teach. Since he is kept busy with baseball and soccer from April thru November, teaching at MSA is quite an excellent fit for him. At the end of his first winter at Mount Snow, Jason met Heather, the love of his life. They are currently looking for a house that they will share with their three dogs, three cats, and her three girls.

In 2017, Jason took the next step in his career and was selected to begin working college baseball and soccer. His current goal is to work games in the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League within a few years.
