- Software Engineer, Code for America
Jason Wesson is a Software Engineer on the GetCalFresh team. Prior to joining Code for America, Jason was a middle school science teacher in Austin, TX. After hosting a coding club for his students in 2019, Jason decided to make a career shift in 2021 via graduating from Hack Reactor as a full-stack software engineer. He is excited to be working in civic tech, helping families and individuals who need nutrition assistance. Jason also hosts a weekly meetup for underrepresented minorities who are seeking to make a similar career shift and he mentors those who come from a non-technical background. Beyond tech-related activities, Jason enjoys collecting comic books, biking, and rock climbing, but not all at the same time.
