Jasons father, Alvin, taught him to play golf at a very young age and helped him practice. But, he was harshly abused and beaten throughout his training. Before Jason turned fourteen, his father would hit him with a belt at home and slapped him on the way from practice when he wouldn’t perform as per the expectation.
To make the matter worse, his dad even suffered from alcoholism and created a hostile environment at home. But his mother, Dening, was always there to comfort Jason and his two sisters.
After the death of his father from stomach cancer when Jason was only 12, his mother admitted Jason to the reputed Kooralbyn International High School by selling the house to secure a good future for her son.
As his mother wanted, Jason continued his golf practice, finished his schooling there, and graduated from Hills International College in the states.
Jason married his girlfriend, Ellie Harvey in 2009. The pair's wedding was held in a barn near Lucas, Ohio where Ellie's family resides.
Jason met Ellie at a restaurant in Twinsburg, where she worked as a server. While making frequent visits with his coach at the restaurant, he started talking to Ellie. However, they started dating only after meeting each other coincidentally in 2006 at a mutual friend's graduation party.
After their marriage, the pair had three beautiful children. Daughter Lucy was born in 2015, son Dash in 2012, and their son Arrow, the youngest in the family, was recently born in 2019.
