Jason Moeller was born in Wichita, Kan., and attended Wichita Collegiate School. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from Emory University in 1998 and having no idea what he wanted to be when he grew up, he became a Wilderness EMT and ski patrolled in Beaver Creek, Colo., in the winter and worked for several different outdoor leadership schools in the summer. Jason moved to Atlanta in 2001 to become a paramedic and worked for Grady Memorial Hospital, providing 911 service to the inner city of Atlanta.
In 2005, Jason went to work for Epic Systems Corporation in Madison, WI as an IT Project Manager for their emergency department application. After spending a few years learning the business side of healthcare, Jason would go back to the emergency room in Denver, CO, receiving an accelerated Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Regis University in 2010. While working in the ER for Swedish Medical Center, Jason met his wife Alyssa, and moved back to Wichita, Kan.
Pursuing the entrepreneurial spirit Jason learned through Epic, he became a minority partner in Senior Care Pharmacy in 2012. He was also a minority owner in companies such as Trajectory, LLC and ClearBlade, INC. In 2013, Jason joined the American Diabetes Association’s Community Leadership Board, specializing in fundraising with the Executive Committee for the Tour de Cure which would go on to become Wichita’s second-largest fundraiser in 2016.
Jason developed a strong passion for service work through the ADA, and had always wanted to help those with PTSD as a personal victim of childhood trauma. After working with national military groups like the Lone Survivor Foundation and Paws for Purple Hearts who help vets with PTSD over the past few years, Jason wanted to devote his time to helping those with PTSD in the Wichita community. Having been a dog lover all his life and having had a few Rottweilers of his own, Midwest Battle Buddies was a perfect fit for Jason. We are grateful to have had him on our board.
It is our honor to name our annual tournament after him and continue his legacy of service and volunteerism.
