Jayson, originally born in Baton Rouge, LA, spent the majority of his life in Austell, GA where he attended an normal little middle school. It was here, through his drama teacher's investment in him that he'd begun to discover his passion. Soon a shy and timid boy would find a love for something he never thought could be actualized, and would come to shape the course of his life.
He then went on to Pebblebrook High School's performing arts magnet program (The Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts. In that performing arts program, his love and passion for acting, singing, and storytelling blossomed. He was fortunate enough to be accepted into is top school, The Theatre School at DePaul University where he would receive his BFA in acting.
Since graduating this past summer Jayson has had the pleasure to become an active member in the Chicago theater scene. He made his professional theatre debut in Chicago's premiere production of Hooded: or being black for dummies by Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm with First Floor Theatre. Through this performance he garnered a Black Theatre Alliance Award for Most Promising Actor as well as a Jeff Nomination for Best Ensemble.
