Meet Jason Lee

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Jason and I’m a co-founder of The Jubilee Project. We make videos for a good cause to empower, enable, and inspire others to do good as well. On the side, I’m also a management consultant.

Where are you from?

I’m a proud Kansan living in The Big Apple. But I was born in Seattle and raised all around the US (New Jersey, Michigan, Texas and Kansas).

What do you like about social media?

I love the fact that it connects people around the world and provides each individual with a voice, everyone from the aspiring Asian-American artist to the oppressed Egyptian revolutionary. There’s a powerful movement taking place and social media is empowering those who are often overlooked and marginalized.

 What is the most important lesson you have learned regarding new media?

Never underestimate the potential of new media to inspire people. One tweet, post, or video can change someone’s life. We’ve received some incredible emails and messages from people around the world who were touched by a simple video.

 What kind of advice would you offer someone trying to pursue social media as a profession?

Figure out what you’re truly passionate about and use social media as a tool to pursue that. It’s important to determine your purpose and goals early on, otherwise it’s easy to become caught up in the numbers. Ultimately, remain true to yourself and remember why it is that you do what you do.
