An All Star driver’s ultimate father-son getaway

March 21, 2018 / Canada

This season, as part of our partnership with the Washington Wizards, we were able to give All Star driver Jason and his 9-year-old son, Jacob, a chance to hit the road with the Wizards for a weekend in New Orleans.

As part of the experience, Jason and Jacob got to explore the city, eat some famous beignets, and watch the Wizards earn a great victory. They even got to meet Wizards stars Jason Smith and Kelly Oubre Jr.

Jason says he loved getting the chance to spend treasured moments with his son and take him on his first plane ride, an experience they’ll always remember. When asked what his favorite part of the weekend was, Jacob answered, “Getting to spend some time with my dad.”

Fun facts about Jason:

  • Favorite Driver app feature: Destination Trips
  • Shortest trip: 1.5 blocks
  • Most memorable rider: the son of a famous football coach
  • Number of trips to date: over 5,500

Here’s some of the wonderful things that Jason’s riders have said about him:

“Thank you, Jason! You were an awesome tour guide and gave us excellent information!”

“Thanks for the great service, made it to my flight on time!👍”

“Great guy. I jumped in the front seat and we talked the whole time. I was actually disappointed the conversation had to end. Nice guy, courteous, and a pleasure to share a ride with.”
