This month’s featured judge is Jason Wong from Ontario, Canada. Regional coordinator Gavin Duggan said this about Jason:

“Jason has been a key player, arguably an MVP, within the Canadian judge community these past few years. He helped to break the L3 drought within the country, proving himself an adept leader at events and then in his local area.

I had the opportunity to observe Jason in action early on, as the L2 HJ of a PTQ several years ago, and was impressed by his calm demeanor and control of the event. In the months after that he took the initiative to travel abroad and learn, bringing knowledge back to Canada to share with other judges. Combined with his willingness to take on responsibilities, resolve conflicts peacefully, and the broad respect of his peers, this made him a natural candidate for the local captain in an area which needed clear leadership. He now acts as the judge manager for eastern GPs and mentor to an extended family of judges… fortunately his patience and dry humour haven’t run out yet.”
