Jason Holzer

Growing up in Taos, Missouri, Jason was raised in a small town with a loving family that gave him every chance to succeed. His parents were supportive and provided everything this 17-year-old could ever want. That is until his life changed forever on May 8, 2003, when his dad unexpectedly passed away by suicide leaving him, his mother and two younger sisters behind.  

Through hard work, dedication, and a strong faith in God, He is now a certified teacher and thought coach, accomplished basketball coach and Elite Skills trainer, Amazon Best Selling author, Post-Traumatic growth  storyteller and the Co-Founder of 4D Athletes.
