Biography

Jason B.A. Van Camp epitomizes leadership and a positive drive to excel. He has an exceptional never-quit attitude and a will to win, coupled with unique ability and desire to unlock the potential of others.  He is a Forbes Business Council Member, a Wall Street Journal, Amazon, and USA Today best-selling author, a decorated Green Beret, a world traveler, and an entrepreneur. First and foremost, though, he is a dedicated husband, loving father, and loyal friend.  Jason has mastered the art of storytelling that reflects many of his own life adventures.

Jason was born in Washington D.C. and raised across the Potomac River in Springfield, Virginia. In 1995, Jason was accepted to the United States Military Academy at West Point. While at West Point, Jason played Linebacker for the Army Black Knights football team, served a two-year LDS Church mission to Russia, and, upon graduation, won the prestigious General Loeffke Award for Excellence in Foreign Languages.

After graduating from West Point, Jason volunteered to attend U.S. Army Ranger School in Fort Benning, GA where he earned his Ranger tab in 2002. Jason then began a one year tour to Korea serving a few miles from the Demilitarized zone (DMZ) between South and North Korea.  Immediately after serving in Korea, Jason was deployed with the 101st Airborne Division in the invasion of Iraq (2003). In 2006, Jason won the coveted Green Beret and began serving as a Detachment Commander with 10th Special Forces Group in Fort Carson, Colorado.

As a Detachment Commander, Jason led his team on close to 300 combat missions to kill/capture high value targets as well as created and commanded one of the largest Foreign Internal Defense Force in U.S. history, training nearly 4000 Iraqi and Kurdish soldiers in hand-to-hand combat, raid and patrolling techniques, unconventional warfare and personal security detail tactics as well as deploying these forces on the battlefield.

During his 14 years in the U.S. Army, Jason has won numerous awards, notably the Bronze Star with V device for Valor as well as two additional Bronze Stars during numerous combat rotations as a Special Forces Detachment Commander in the Middle East and Africa.

In 2013, Jason earned his MBA from Brigham Young University and it was there that he developed a passion for entrepreneurship. Jason believes in servant leadership, the art of determination, and the power of storytelling. This philosophy has served him well in his life.

Jason then founded Mission Six Zero, a leadership consulting firm comprised of Medal of Honor recipients, U.S. Army Rangers, Navy SEALs and other Special Operations Forces team members, he founded in 2009.  The company offers assessments, masterclasses, workshops, and live keynotes in a variety of industries:  pharmaceutical, medical device, financial services, real estate, technology, governmental organizations (including law enforcement), as well as others.

Over the past 10 years, Jason is a seasoned speaker, having given hundreds of talks to corporate conferences, trade organizations, governmental agencies, military units and youth groups.  He is a proponent of Mission Six Zero’s Total Warrior (TM) model.

Jason is also honored to be the Founder and Executive Director of Warrior Rising, which he started in 2015 to empower U.S. veterans and their immediate families by providing them opportunities to create sustainable businesses, perpetuate the hiring of fellow U.S. military veterans, and earn their future.  Warrior Rising is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping veterans achieve success in business through instruction, mentoring, funding access, and maintaining the veteran community.  To date, Warrior Rising has had more than 3,000 veterans apply to its program.
