For a long time, it was only John and Cheyanne here at Art Share L.A., working 12 – 15 hour days in order to bring life back into the building. With John on staff, we were able to continue hosting Thursday night events and grow into Friday and Saturday nights, which doubled our public hours from 30 hours to 60 hours per week.
John guided thousands of renters through our building, and each and every one of them has asked, DzWhere can I find extension cords. Despite the utter annoyance, and a gritted smile, John never faltered or batted an eyelash – within minutes, an extension cord appears! We often hear from enamored renters, DzJohn, is like, the nicest person in the world!dz Indeed, John has an incredible reserve of patience that soothes our renters’ nerves when they experience event logistics hell.
Since 2013, John has been promoted from Events Assistant to Event Coordinator, and in 2017, attained the title of Event Manager. In an average week, he managed 5 theater events, 6 classroom gatherings, gallery volunteers, and our Executive Director.
John Jason is our friend, family member, an invaluable contributor to the Art Share machine and will be missed dearly.
