ason Freeman is a professional speaker, author, and bravery coach who travels the country sharing his inspirational and transformative journey with captivated audiences . . . and he does it with a pronounced speech impediment.

From the dream affirming standing ovation following his TEDx talk in Sugarland, TX to his earliest moments in front of an attentive crowd, Jason has learned to trust his seemingly contradictory calling to speak in front of live audiences.  He has shared the stage with well-known speakers in the transformational, entertainment, entrepreneurship, and business worlds and has charmed audiences at The California Teacher’s Summit, Kyle Cease’s Evolving Out Loud, The Habitude Warrior Conference, The People First Conference in San Diego, and San Diego State University, amongst others.

Did You Know?

Jason once threw a shot put backwards during a seventh grade track meet.  Also around this time, he was in a bowling league. Jason is proud to say that he never once threw a bowling ball backwards.

FUN FACT: Jason once ate only turnips, blue berries, and ramen noodles for a week because somebody told him that it would cure his speech impediment.

Did You Know?

By far the stinkiest job Jason has ever had was burying a cow that had been deceased for over a month.

Did You Know?

Jason hasn’t yet been featured in USA Today, Forbes, or the Wall Street journal, but he is proud to say he has read all three.

Graduating from college with majors in English and Social Work, Jason went on to obtain a Masters of Fine Arts in Poetry before realizing his biggest accomplishment: transcending the physical limitations of cerebral palsy within himself and embracing his voice as the gift it was intended to be.  It was not an accomplishment easily met. For much of his life, Jason struggled to accept his voice, his body, and his place in the world. Desperate for a change, he set out on a decade long journey of rigorous self-development. He studied with gifted coaches, stretched his beliefs with yoga teachers, and sat in attendance at more workshops and seminars than he can properly recount today.  The result that Jason discovered along the way is a life full of happiness, possibility and success worthy of being shared and awakened within others.


Jason is deeply grateful for all his magnificent friends, colleagues and wonderful parents who still inspire him everyday.
