About Jason Anderson Foundation:
The Jason Anderson Foundation for Youth Sports is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt not-for-profit organization founded by the Anderson family after Jason tragic died in an automobile accident in January of 2015 at the age of 33. The outpouring of support for the family from friends, colleagues, co-workers, neighbors and gracious members of the community prompted the family and close friends to establish this foundation in Jason's name as a way to give back to the community.
