Jason is a 1994 graduate of The College of Business at The Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in finance. Prior to college, he served two years in the United States Army as a stinger missile operator (16S). Jason has three children: Ben, Aaron, and Zemi, two dogs- Viggo and Coco, and one cat- Majesty. Jason has been a member of Four Oaks Community Church for nearly 20 years.
Jason is an avid sports fan, especially when it comes to his Florida State Seminoles. Jason is a member of both Seminole Boosters and the FSU Alumni Association. Originally from Peoria, Illinois, Jason says, “By the grace of God my grandfather was a Cardinal fan, not a Cub!” His Midwestern roots put him in conflict with his Florida roots, as he pulls for two NFL teams: the Chicago Bears and the Tampa Bay Bucs. “Growing up a Bears fan is something that stays a part of you, but the Bucs play in Tampa!” says Brienen.
Jason moved with his parents, Randy & Debra Brienen, to Tallahassee in 1982, and attended both Leon and Godby high schools. His parents are both accomplished local artists, and with 20 of their paintings on display at our Bannerman Crossings office, we sometimes refer to Chiron Capital as “The Brienen Art Gallery.”
