Jasen grew up in Anchorage, Alaska and spent his childhood hunting, fishing and playing hockey. In the spring of 1988 he moved to International Falls, MN and was a member of the 1989 Bronco’s hockey team that played in the Minnesota High School State Tournament. After two seasons in the USHL, Jasen attended Rochester Institute of Technology before earning his Bachelor’s Degree and finishing his hockey playing career at the University of St. Thomas in 1996. He would later go on to earn his Master’s degree at UST in 2004. Jasen enjoyed a very rewarding 23-year coaching career, 21 of them being at the College level and 2 years at the high school level. His professional life has taken a new path, joining Reliable Agency as a Commercial Lines Producer. Away from the office, Jasen spends time with his wife Rachel and two sons, Noah and Ethan, both hockey players themselves. The family can most likely be found either on the lake or at the ice rink!
