After two decades in the military, 4,000+ hours of flying time and 2,000+ hours in combat, a powerful truth became apparent to Jason O. Harris: Trust and leadership are interconnected - one cannot function without the other!

Through harrowing, life-altering experiences, Jason has learned the importance of cross- generational communication relying on men and women from half to twice his age. This communication is based on mutual trust and is the basis for his No Fail TRUST™methodology. The trust Jason instilled in his air crews that kept them in the sky and out of harm’s way, is the same value of empowerment and cultivating an environment of trust, that Jason brings into today's business world.

Growing up in East Oakland, CA, as the second of six children in a single-parent home, Jason learned the value of dedication.  With it, hard work, and determination to avoid a life of poverty and mediocrity, Jason earned a congressional nomination to the United States Air Force Academy, which led to an accomplished military career as a decorated Air Force pilot.

  •  USAF Elite Special Operations Instructor Pilot
