Jason went to Northern Vance High School, where he was a member of the National Honor Society. During his schooling, he was prominent in football but also in track and field, and is the holder of four state championships – one in shot put and three in discus. After enrolling at North Carolina University, Brown started playing for their football team, and in 2004 he was named First-team All-ACC. In his freshman year he played in the position of right tackle, and was later transferred to guard. His final position was center, which he held for the remaining three years of his college career.
Jason’s outstanding play at University made him one of the best centers available in the 2005 NFL Draft, and therefore he was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round, kick-starting his net worth. He spent his first two seasons as a backup to Mike Flynn, and then played at guard in the 2007 season. In the following season, he started all 16 games as a center, and by the end of it he was considered to be the best interior offensive lineman going into free agency.
In February 2009, on the first day of his free agency, Brown visited the St. Louis Rams and agreed to a $37.5 million five-year contract, including $20 million in guaranteed money, a deal which made him the highest paid center in the NFL. Incredulously to many, three years later Jason was released by the Rams and chose to abandon football at the age of 29 so that he could become a farmer in Louisburg, North Carolina.
Since he had no previous knowledge of farming, Brown began learning about it by watching YouTube videos. He now owns and maintains a 1000-acre farm where he grows vegetables such as potatoes and inyari. Brown donates his crops to local food pantries, and has so far given away more than an estimated 56,000 pounds of food.
Privately, Jason married dentist Tay Brown in 2003, when he started his studies at North Carolina. The couple has five children. Brown is also known under his nickname “Chef”, which he got after a character from “South Park”, due to his beard and deep voice. He is a practicing Christian and every fall he and his wife host an event called the “Harvest of Hope”, when volunteers come to help in picking and bagging food which is then delivered to charity.
