Jason Wimberly’s desire as a young man was to serve his country, so he enlisted in the US Army in 2003. As a teenager, Jason had issues with his heart but found out he also had hypertension as well as heart disease, which made it difficult to do physical training. Unfortunately, Jason had to leave but was given a discharge status upgrade from the Army, and they released him four months later.

Jason was heartbroken and did not know what to do but he persevered. He worked 20 years in tech sales and at Elsevier, a stem cell research journal. Jason is a giver and advocate for those in need. He loves volunteering for civic causes and talking to legislators for consumer protections; he helps chronically ill patients get transportation for medical care and fights for a patient’s bill of rights and better oversight of their medical care.

Jason was diagnosed in 2021 with Stage 3 chronic kidney disease at age 37, started dialysis the same year, and is still being treated for diabetes. He has some wonderful neighbors who look out for him and is choosing to move forward and help as many others as possible. Jason needs a few people who will advocate for him by sharing his story and some who may even be willing to consider becoming his kidney donor, both will give him a wonderful chance to continue his life of helping others.

Jason has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
