Our Team



Right out of college, Jason fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a professional firefighter. During this time he also started Trinity Landscape, which became one of the fastest growing landscape companies in Arizona. Trinity later merged with Sun State Landscape Management where Jason currently serves as partner.

In 2008, at the age of 25, Jason left his career as a firefighter and started 1MISSION, a community development organization giving people in poverty the opportunity to earn a house by serving their community.

In 2012 Jason co-founded Mission Create, where he currently leads the overall mission and vision.

He is a sought after speaker on important subjects such as poverty alleviation, social innovation, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship. He currently serves on the board of The Global CHE Network, representing 500+ agencies in 112 countries serving the physical and spiritual needs of people.

Jason and his wife Tina live in Phoenix with their three children. You see what he’s up to @_jasonlaw.
