Jason Green was hired in 1996 as a Circuit Rider for Oregon Association of Water Utilities, and he later worked as Training Specialist. In 1998 he was offered the Executive Director position. Previous to employment at OAWU, he served on the OAWU board of directors for ten years, three being president, while also working for several water and wastewater systems. He holds dual certifications in water treatment/distribution and wastewater treatment/collections.
While Jason believes he is blessed to work at OAWU, he also knows “our part in this is to work hard, be honest, adaptable and communicate with purpose”. With over 20 years in the water/wastewater field and with OAWU, he still has passion for the association, its’ purpose and the people he works for and with. Though much of his work is now within an office or at meetings, he still very much enjoys getting out into the field, speaking at a conference or teaching a class, and seeing the members.
Jason and his bride since 1986, live on the coast in the Pacific City area with their three lovely daughters. He enjoys his family, church and outdoor activities that mostly include fur, fins or feathers.
