Meet the SPU Staff Member of the Month for May 2017


Jason Herrman

Director of Marketing Technology in University Communications
Hometown: Connell, Washington


Meet Jason ...

How long have you been at SPU?

I transferred here in 2006.

Tell us about a memorable “good day at work”?

A good day in UC usually involves delicious baked goods and laughing at jokes on Slack (a collaboration tool).

How does your faith impact your work?

It adds a level of compassion between co-workers that I have not found anywhere else.

Tell us the piece of your life journey that brought you to Seattle Pacific?

After my sophomore year of college, I decided to transfer to SPU. Seattle was a big part of that. I found a great group of friends while working at the CIS helpdesk that summer. Residence Life also placed me next to my future wife, Asa.

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

Take a break from sitting at a desk all day — gardening, cooking, and home improvement projects.

What’s something that few people know about you?

My dream job is to start a small BBQ restaurant.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

Tech never stops changing. It can feel overwhelming at times, but there is a lot of satisfaction in keeping up with this field. I also love interacting with our student workers. My goal is to add relevant work experience to their education at SPU, and provide a fun place to work. I really appreciated that opportunity during my time as a student.

What’s the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Drawing a blank on this one.

Please join Staff Council in congratulating Jason Herrman as Staff of the Month!
