He connects with [the audience] and brings us to a place of understanding, empathy and empowerment. He’s sincere, engaging and hilarious! If you desire a memorable speech that will leave your audience smiling, I highly recommend Jason Freeman."
2015 Charter Teacher of the Year
Jason Freeman is on a mission. That mission: to speak to millions of people in his lifetime. Why? Well, as it turns out, transcending the physical limitations of a speech impediment and coordination differences, stemming from being born with cerebral palsy, weren’t the hardest things he had to overcome. His hardest obstacle was prevailing against the mental anguish of self-hatred and shame he developed surrounding his body and voice.
Today Jason considers his cerebral palsy a gift. Calling cerebral palsy a gift might seem like a huge stretch but for Jason, this is precisely what he grew to appreciate it as: a profound gift that allowed him to chart a profound course in life. In addition to realizing his dream of becoming a professional speaker (yes, you read that correctly), writing a memoir/self-help book entitled “Awkwardly Awesome - Embracing My Imperfect Best" and delivering a meaningful TEDx talk, Jason travels the country, speaking about his experience overcoming both physical and perceived limitations as a way to excite and encourage his audiences to break through the barriers of their own limitations using a method he created, called "doing your Imperfect Best ™”.
Jason has shared the stage with well-known speakers in the transformational, entertainment, entrepreneural and business worlds and has charmed audiences at The California Teacher's Summit, Kyle Cease's Evolving Out Loud, The Habitude Warrior Conference, The People First Conference in San Diego, and San Diego State University, amongst others.
Graduating from college with Majors in English and Social Work, Jason went on to obtain a Masters of Fine Arts in Poetry before realizing his dream of Professional Speaking.

"I have now had the opportunity to share a stage with Jason on more than one occasion and had him as a guest on my radio program. I can confidently say that Jason is a class-act both on and off the stage. He is man who walks the talk when it comes to demonstrating bravery and overcoming fear. I have found his talks to be enlightening, uplifting, and inspirational. He has a warm personality coupled with a great sense of humor, and he lights up a room with his positive energy. Whether you are looking for a speaker to inspire your students, or a keynote at your company dinner, I would absolutely recommend Jason Freeman. He will not disappoint!"
"Jason served as our “EdTalk” Speaker at the CSUSM site of the 2016 Better Together: CA Teachers Summit with overwhelming success so much so that he received a standing ovation by a ballroom full of experienced teachers and administrators. His talk was excellent: full of wisdom, encouragement, inspiration, and “use on Monday morning” content. Our audience came seeking empowerment, ideas and support for the coming year, and Jason delivered so much more!
Professional, personable, compassionate, he blew them away with quiet confidence and authenticity."

"Jason Freeman graciously accepted an invitation to speak to one of my university courses; Psychology of Exceptional Child class. When I first met Jason, I found him to be authentic, funny, and very inspiring. Jason does not disappoint, as my students loved hearing his story, and enjoyed interacting with him. These future teachers were inspired and they learned a great deal about working with individuals living with disabilities. Jason’s message had both personal and professional words of advice. I do not know anyone more authentic than Jason. He has a powerful message to share and will inspire anyone who has the opportunity to meet him."
