He advocates for open data and civic tech through events such as CityCamp.
Jase holds a BA in Urban Planning & Design from UMKC and a Masters in City Planning from MIT. While an undergrad in 2004, he founded Luminopolis, a civic software firm with a special focus on web-based community engagement tools.
