Jason Schmiedeknecht

Sales Account Executive

How long have you worked at IT Resource? Since July, 2018

Tell us something your colleagues don't know about you. I love to sing and perform regularly in churches and for weddings. I have even performed the national anthem at a Red Wings game.

What's the most interesting job you've ever had that was not IT related? The most interesting job I have held was playing professional football. The challenges of putting your body through physical abuse and keeping a sharp mind is the most challenging thing I have ever done.

What was the last book you read? “The Power Of A Praying Man”

What's one thing you have to have every day? It has to be Coffee

If you could meet one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? Abraham Lincoln

What's your favorite movie of all time? I would probably have to say that “We Were Soldiers” is my favorite movie. I love historically accurate war movies.

What's the best place you've ever travelled to? Germany

What do you consider to be your greatest success in life so far? My greatest success in life is raising my two beautiful children. Both of them are very good kids with strong moral values. They treat others well and are driven young adults.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received? You may not think you have the time to do something right the first time, but you will always have time to do something right the second time.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? I always wanted to play professional football. After achieving that goal, I would have to say that it was not at all worth all the hard work and injury that I put my body through.
