Jason is a Veteran and Former Missouri Secretary of State.
A former Army Captain who served in Afghanistan, Jason Kander was elected to the Missouri state legislature in 2008 and as Missouri Secretary of State in 2012, making him the first American millennial elected to statewide office. He served as a teaching fellow at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics, worked as a CNN Commentator, and appeared on every major television network.
In 2018, Jason ran for mayor of Kansas City. Three months into that campaign, Jason ended his candidacy to step back from public life and seek treatment for post-traumatic stress he’d been struggling with since coming home from Afghanistan. He spent eight months out of the public eye while addressing his mental health.
Today, Jason is the President of National Expansion at Veterans Community Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting veteran suicide and veteran homelessness. He is the founder of Afghan Rescue Project.
A graduate of American University and Georgetown Law School, Jason has written two New York Times bestselling books, Outside the Wire: Ten Lessons I’ve Learned in Everyday Courage, and Invisible Storm: A Soldier’s Memoir of Politics and PTSD, as well as a children’s book, Courage Is, which he co-authored with his son.
Jason lives in Kansas City with his wife Diana, their son True, and their daughter Bella. In his spare time, he coaches True’s Little League team and plays centerfield for the Kansas City Hustlers of the National Men’s Adult Baseball League.
