Creative to the rescue

Meet Jason Shupe

Let’s start by getting to know you a little better. Tell us about yourself.

I was an Air Force brat. I was raised all over but ended up here in DFW. I dropped out of every school I ever attended, but I ended up in graphics arts. It’s ironic because art was the only class I ever failed. I married my best friend and we have three sons. If I have any amount of time to spare, I am outside fixing things or hanging out with my kids. 

What’s something you love to do?

Anything outside, and I fix stuff.

What’s your favorite place?

Death Valley.

What do you love about the job?

Teaching others.

What is the last thing you binge-watched?

The Sopranos. Not very current on shows.

What’s your favorite book?

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

If you could live in any sitcom, which would it be?

Mork & Mindy. Killer location, nice jeep, puffy vests, and suspenders.

Are you a listener or a talker?


If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?


If there weren’t any more computers, what would be your new occupation?


What’s the scariest thing you’ve done for fun?


What’s your favorite children’s story?

I have no idea.

If you had an extra hour of free time every day, what would you spend it doing?


Any words of advice?

Don’t be an asshole.

Why Schaefer?

Friendly people.
