Glass Would Be Great Choice for '10 to Watch'
Editor’s Note: Congratulations to Tippie alumni Casey Everts, BBA/EntreCert10, and Jason Glass, BBA99/MBA10, who were named to the Iowa City Press-Citizen’s list of 10 to watch in 2014.
I am pleased to nominate Jason Glass of North Liberty as one of the Press-Citizen's "10 to watch in 2014" list.
A native of Fairfield and having earned bachelor's and master's degrees in business administration from the University of Iowa, Glass' career path took him from Iowa and then back to settle with his wife, Megan, and their two children in Johnson County. He is employed as the chief people officer at Four Oaks in Cedar Rapids, managing the statewide staff of more than 850 people.
Although distinguished in his professional career, Glass' work and activities outside of his vocation speak to his commitment to serving his community.
He is a member of the Iowa Army National Guard with a rank of E-6 serving with the 34th Army Band. He has been an active member of the Johnson County Republican Central Committee and serving as its vice-chairman and publicity chairman.
In April, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad appointed Glass to serve as a member of the Iowa Human Rights Commission. As one of two public members on that board, along with the other board members, he oversees the budget and activities for the Iowa Department of Human Rights.
In 2009, he was named by the Corridor Business Journal to its prestigious "Forty Under 40" group. There is no question that he has met the expectations set by that designation.
Glass is a member of our community who will continue to make a positive impact here. I look forward to the Press-Citizen naming him as one of their "10 to watch" in 2014.
