While he opted for a football career, his wife was a nurse at Parkland Memorial Hospital for over a decade.
Moreover, Jason and Michelle are parents to four children; two sons named Christopher and Cooper and two daughters named Landry and Hadley.
Michelle enjoys the process of her motherhood, from getting them ready to school, carpooling them, and helping them with all their activities. However, with his growing family, Jason initially felt like he was not doing much for his children.
Given that he was busy with his career, he still felt that he wouldn't be a good dad.
"I still remember the uncertainty I felt when my first son was born. It was the middle of the football season, I was working full-time, and whenever I’d come home I’d try to take over for my wife or at least help out."
He further added, "And those first couple of months, I felt like, "Man, I'm not going to be a really good dad. This doesn't come naturally to me." Still, I did the diapers and I did the bottles and, just like any father, I got the hang of it."
Indeed, the journey of fatherhood was challenging, but seemingly, there is no other way Jason would have wanted his life to be.
The family man values family over anything and never shies away from posting pictures with his wife topped off with romantic captions.
