The NAACP San Diego Branch is pleased to honor Jason Sevier at our 2019 Freedom Fund Dinner!
Jason Sevier is a native San Diegan and University City High School Alumni. He attributes his Godly knowledge to his foundation at Calvary Baptist Church where he first learned to be an attendant for the Lord. He became a more distinguished public servant when he entered the United States Navy in nineteen ninety-three. He has continued to anchor himself under the vigilant guidance of Pastor Gary at New Creation Church of San Diego.
He continued his honorable servitude by working for the city of San Diego Department of Fire and Life Safety Services and later transitioned to the City of Coronado.
Outside of his career of public service, Jason continues his commission by devoting his energy to Fidelity Lodge #10 Prince Hall Free and Accepted Masons.
He has always been intrigued with his family history of the Fraternal Organization of Freemasonry. With the support and encouragement of several of his uncles, Jason initiated his candidacy in 2009. Bound by ambition and drive to be an active member of his lodge, Jason graciously shouldered the work of Worshipful Master for two terms beginning in twenty seventeen. Under his two terms, Fidelity Lodge #10 Prince Hall Free and Accepted Masons cemented several notable stones of their legacy. This includes making a significant impact to improve poverty, giving back to the community, and making better men out of good men. Today, Jason continues to go above and beyond by making generous contributions of time and support to other local small businesses and community members all while currently serving as Worthy Patron of Ruth Chapter Eleven of the Eastern Stars and raising his only son.
Jason embraces the mission of showing great concern for and giving to those less fortunate. He continues to look for ways to make a more tangible impact by enlisting and empowering others to also have the same compassion for the less fortunate. Jason has graciously started his own food ministry in an effort to outreach.
When he is not at church, work, or the lodge, one can most likely find him either spending time with his family or perfecting his bowling & barbecuing skills. He has made a name for himself in both areas. Passionate about his grill mastery, Jason still finds the ability to marry the assignment of tithing time for good with the satisfaction of a calculated and intricately well-prepared meal.
Graciously, Jason accepts the NAACP honors in hopes of raising more awareness of social, educational, and economic injustice that are still very present in San Diego today and engage us in a call to action for change.
The Freedom Fund Dinner is an annual event that, in addition to celebrating our supporters, recognizes groups and individuals who have contributed to the cause of Civil Rights and racial justice throughout the City, County, State and Nation. This year will be an extraordinary celebration, as we look back on the 100 years since the founding of the San Diego Branch, and look forward to our bright future.
The evening is sure to be memorable and enjoyable for all.
