What -- and where -- is Java Joe's?
Java Joe's had many homes, but Jason's career began at its last coffeehouse location at 1956 Bacon St. in Ocean Beach. From 2001 until late 2002, Jason's Thursday night residency quickly became a much talked about event in and around San Diego, eventually attracting fans lined up around the block, each hoping to score a highly coveted spot inside the ~125 person-capacity club. Joe closed his doors to the public in September 2002, later relocating briefly to Kelly's Pub before ending his business for good. Jason continues to contribute his early success to his time spent performing at Java Joe's, where he was able to establish a strong local fan base and hone his skills as a writer and performer.

Is Jason gay?
When did you first become aware of gay issues?
I guess it was back in high school. Other kids always referred to me as being gay so it sparked interest. After some brief research and experimentation I realized I was not. My best friend was, however, having come out shortly after high school. I never saw it coming. I just thought he was way cooler and classier than everyone else.
