Jason was diagnosed with Von Hippel Lindau disease in 2008. This rare genetic disorder predisposes individuals to benign and malignant tumors. Some of Jason's tumors are in his kidneys and those are low grade cancer.
Jason goes to Mayo Clinic for medical care. He has had multiple tests and will continue a lifetime of medical care for his condition. He does have health insurance which covers 80% of the cost of treatment, but the remaining cost is mounting.
Jason is a graduate of Pinckneyville Community High School. He was a member of the 2001 state champion basketball team and helped lead the Panthers to the basketball super-sectional in 2002. He is the son of the late Jackie Dean Houghland and Eva and Joel Hopp.
