Jason Pyrz was born into the unfortunate situation of having a family name with no true vowels. Having lived most of his early childhood in the near southwest suburbs of Chicago, directly under the approach to Midway Airport, nothing exciting really happened to him with the exception of the time he got to shake Mr. T’s hand on a school field trip to a movie set.

Jason currently resides in Naperville, IL with his wife, Sue, and ...more
