However, it was not until his time at UGA that Jason truly discovered his calling to help people hear their best. While volunteering at the Speech and Hearing Clinic servicing children and young adults, Jason saw firsthand the absolute joy and beauty hearing brings to an individual’s life. Seeing a person’s face light up with utter happiness upon hearing for the first time is an amazing experience. Jason knew then “Hearing is his passion and helping people hear their best is his mission!”
After graduating from UGA, Jason started working at Starkey Laboratories Inc. located in Norcross, Georgia. He served as a customer service representative for the Audibel Division as well as a hearing instrument specialist overseeing The Center for Fitting Excellence for 5 years.

In his personal time, Jason loves spending time at home with Heather and their four-legged kid, Cotton. Most nights Cotton’s pals, Jax and Mav, visit for a play date in the backyard. Jason hangs out with the boys tossing the ball, rough-housing, and the much-anticipated cruising of the neighborhood on walks. When not sleeping in, Jason enjoys his early morning workouts and weekend runs. Over the weekends, Jason appreciates a slightly competitive golf game with family or friends. He meticulously manicures his lawn, trees, and shrubs, calling it lawn therapy. Jason is the grill master of the Murphy household helping with weekly meal prepping. Relaxing on the beach is his favorite vacation activity. However, when football season rolls around, Jason is Athens, Georgia bound to witness the “DAWGS meeting Between the Hedges.”

Jerry and Vicky treat you like family. The best part is the service after the sale. You will not get this level of service from other providers.

Jason was very thorough when he tested my dad’s hearing. He was knowledgeable and patiently ensured we both understood where and what the impairment was. He explained best and worst case scenarios for what an aid device would accomplish. He was not pushy about trying to sell the top-of-the-line product....
