Jason helped to establish the market for Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia art and memorabilia by curating three large scale global auctions for Bonhams auction house in 2007, 2008, and 2012. Jason is also a collector and remains active in both the art and memorabilia markets. Dedicating his life to the service of music and musicians, Jason has been involved in Artist Relations since the mid 1990s, and is currently the Artist Liaison for Telefunken Elektroakustik, the world’s premier microphone company.
