Jason Bearden is an accomplished entrepreneur, National non-profit leader, speaker and Iraqi combat veteran. He served in the United States Marine Corps for over eight years and completed his service as a Marine Corps Scout Sniper Team Leader and Staff Sergeant (E-6). Jason also holds an Executive MBA from the University of South Florida.
Jason’s father is a thirty year career Marine and his mother is an immigrant. Because of his parents’ experiences and Jason’s upbringing, he developed a profound appreciation for America, an unwavering belief in our founding principles and a dedication to serve that kindled in him. After leaving active duty, Jason started his family and found his permanent home in Florida where he has launched several successful businesses and collaborated with key individuals to start and foster a National Christian business organization.
Jason and his wife, Katie, are the proud parents of two children. Together, they serve their community with Jason holding the title of National Vice President and Local President of the Full Gospel Business Gatekeepers Organization and Katie holding an Advisory position at Carenet Manasota.
Jason’s reach in Manatee county has rapidly grown alongside his and others’ belief in putting God first and following the foundations our fore fathers established at the onset of our beautiful nation; he has the same concerns that any parent, father or business owner would have about the quality of our schools, our quality of life, and ensuring that our children and grandchildren enjoy the same freedoms we do in this country we love. Jason believes the challenges we face today are not hard, but they do require leadership. He believes that making change requires taking responsibility when the responsibility is yours and anticipating a problem before it becomes a calamity. In the Marines these truths became his moral code and they’re what he lives by, today. He’ll use these engrained truths to protect Manatee County because he’s dedicated to doing what’s RIGHT, not what’s easy. It’s the kind of Marine he was. It’s the kind of Commissioner he’ll be.
