About Jason Statts

On June 28, 2008, Jason Statts, a professional graphic designer, local musician, 1996 SCAD graduate and overall amazing guy, was a victim of a violent crime in Ardsley Park. Statts was shot in the neck and suffered irreparable damage to his spinal column.

Since then, he has relied on government assistance to cover his mounting medical costs, and the support of his friends and family to keep him smiling. His family and friends host fundraisers to help fill in the gaps in his finances so that he can receive the benefits and medical assistance he requires.
