Jayson was born in Baton Rouge, LA but grew up in Austell, GA where he attended Pebblebrook High School's performing arts magnet program (The Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts). It was there that his love and passion for acting, singing, and storytelling blossomed. Upon finishing up his senior year of high school, he decided he was going to move out to Chicago where he attended The Theatre School at DePaul University to receive his BFA in acting. Some of his Theatre School credits include Chonen in A Dybbuk: or between two worlds, Anthony in I and You, Buddy in Native Son, and The Baker in Into the Woods. This past fall he had the pleasure of performing in the Chicago premiere of HOODED; or being black for dummies as Marquis at First Floor Theater. Jayson is very excited to be graduating in June and even more excited to be represented by Gray Talent.
