CBC Alumni Spotlight on Jason Sweet, Biochemistry, Class of 2018

May 31, 2023
CBC Alumni Jason Sweet

   I'm very grateful for the opportunity to be a UArizona football player from 2014-2016, and receive the best education I could've asked for. Before attending the University, I served as a Special Operator in the military, and deployed to Afghanistan. My job involved skydiving, mountain climbing, SCUBA diving, shooting, and conducting advanced medicine. I enrolled in UArizona shortly after returning from a deployment to Afghanistan.

   Since graduating from UArizona in 2018, my life has taken an incredible turn. Studying biochemistry led me into the field of Human Performance Sciences. After winning a grant from the NCAA/Department of Defense in 2017, I used the money to start my own company, SOCOM Athlete LLC. We are heading into year 6 of being in business, and recently earned our 6th government contract from the United States military. We're accomplishing things no other company has accomplished before by solving critical problems for the military's Special Operations recruiting and performance efforts, and this is just the beginning for us.
   Where I've been blessed, the most is by starting a beautiful family in Florida. My wife Jessica (also a UArizona alumni) and I are expecting our second son this August, and I couldn't be more grateful for the exciting and joyful life we're experiencing.
   I thank the U of A for helping set me up for success in life, and am forever grateful to people like Olivia Mendoza for believing in me during some of my toughest times. Bear Down!
