Jasan Matthews was born deaf to a hearing family of 6 children. Jasan was born 3rd in his family, and all of his siblings have learned to sign or finger spell or "home signs" to communicate. He grew up on a working 550 acre dairy farm in northern Vermont. He received hearing aids as a young boy and learned Signing Exact English as a student at the Austine School for the Deaf in Vermont. When he was a teenager he began to learn American Sign Language. He attended Austine as a weekly dorm student from the age of 5 when he entered Kindergarten. As a graduate of Austine, he attended a community college for a short time in New Jersey. Jasan has a strong work ethic and has had a variety of jobs throughout his life, but holds dairy farming and Deaf Christian Ministry close to his heart. He is a happy, go with the flow kind of guy. He currently lives in northern Maine with his wife and 2 children. They are expecting their third child this fall. Jasan loves spending time with his family and socializing with all people.
