Before Jason`s career began after he attended the Harvard Business School from which he graduated with his MBA, however, prior to Harvard, he was a student at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, from which he graduated with a BA degree in Business Administration, Journalism & Mass Communication in 1993.
Jason’s career began when he joined the Walt Disney Company, where he worked for Disney Design & Development on a variety of projects including animation, which was a significant start to building his net worth. Kilar left the company in 1997 to join Amazon, and began slowly to work his way up in the business industry. Jason was the one responsible for Amazon`s business plan to spread Amazon`s operations to the video and DVD businesses,. Thanks to his successful ideas, Jason was soon promoted to position of Vice President and General Manager of Amazon’s North American media businesses. Furthermore, he also served as a Senior Vice President of Worldwide Application Software, from 2003 to 2006, all of which certainly increased his net worth.
Despite being very successful with Amazon, he left around 2006, and rented an office in Fremont, and a year later, Hulu was launched, as a joint venture of such companies as MSN, MySpace, Facebook and AOL, with Kilar as its CEO and business executive. In no time, Hulu became one of the leading online video streaming services, increasing in its worth, which has only benefited Jason`s net worth too.
However, Jason subsequently sold his stake for around $40 million, and used it to start another video streaming service, “Vessel”, in 2014, with other investment companies such as Benchmark and Greylock Panthers, and with a help of Richard Tom, who had been Hulu`s CTO. The company runs alongside YouTube as a video service, with both free and subscriber elements, and is so far proving relatively successful with its content.
