19 year-old Jason Brown, a 2013 Highland Park High School graduate, is heading to the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia!

Jason began skating with the Park District at age 3 1/2 and has been a regular in the Park District’s annual Ice Show ever since.  He is now one of twoskaters representing the United States in Men’s Figure Skating.
