A California native, Jathan also lived in West Virginia, Arkansas, Texas and New York. He currently resides in Ohio with his wife, Heather.
Jathan worked in the financial sector for many years before he went to university to study Journalism. While there, he wrote news articles and entertainment features for the newspaper, The News Record. He also wrote and reported for the broadcast news show, Uptown. But it was his work for the radio station, Bearcast, that won him the 2007 Specialty DJ of the Year award for three shows he produced and hosted: "Jathan", a morning talk show which featured interviews with novelists, doctors, musicians, philanthropists, and more; "Jade After Dark," which featured the sultry side of R&B and jazz; and "Smooth Jazz Monday Morning."
Jathan now owns and operates Jadeworks Entertainment and serves as Creative Director for District A, a non-profit organization.
Despite his strong work ethic, however, he is happiest when his home is filled with the laughter and love of family and friends.
Jathan's musical tastes are quite eclectic, covering the spectrum from everything from Andrea Bocelli, Whitney Houston, Carlos Santana, B.B. King, Brian Culbertson, Miles Davis, to Bon Jovi and Rufus Wainwright. "I just love a good song, regardless of genre", he said.
