Meet Jason Ross

Meet Jason Ross

When we were given the opportunity to employ Jason Ross as a part-time helper around the salon, we didn’t realize just how seriously he would take his job!  We partnered with Semiahmoo House Society to sponsor Jason’s part-time employment with Fresh Hair Concepts.  Jason helps keep the salon tidy and in ship-shape order by cleaning, organizing and being his awesome humorous self.  He has a big heart and is a self-proclaimed “ladies man” who isn’t shy when it comes to dishing out compliments and big smiles.   The staff at Fresh love having Jason around and it’s clear that he loves being part of the team.  Most clients enjoy their brief interactions with Jason and appreciate the opportunity Fresh has given him to learn and experience new life skills.  We asked Jason how he felt being on the team and he said: 

I’m excited to come to work because it’s like home.  I love my job and all of you guys!

We feel the same about you Jason 🙂
