Jason Mitchum - Account Manager
Landscape Industry Since: 2005
Signature Landscape Since: 2022
Jason grew up in Central Kansas in the small town of Ellinwood. There he spent a large amount of time working on the farm, fishing the local Arkansas River, and playing countless rounds of golf on the community golf course – Grove Park. These places are where his love for the green industry began. He felt at peace when he was outdoors, and he learned valuable skills and knowledge that would serve him well later in life.
Jason first attended Barton County Community College on a golf scholarship after high school. He transitioned from playing golf to football, and pursued a bachelor’s degree in sports administration, graduating from Tabor College.
After college, Jason moved to the Kansas City area in 2005 where he started working in the lawn and landscaping industry. He started out mowing lawns and doing fall aerations and quickly worked himself up to becoming a turf, tree, and shrub specialist. Eventually, he moved over to the management side where he became a Production Manager for a couple different local landscape companies, overseeing the chemical applications and mowing departments.
In 2022, Jason joined Signature Landscape as an Account Manager. His philosophy has always been simple: service to others first. Like the great Aristotle wrote, “Finding happiness and fulfillment is achieved by loving rather than in being loved.” He carries his desire to help others into his daily work life. Listening to his clients’ needs and then exceeding their expectations brings him joy and satisfaction. He always has a desire to learn, which helps him reach his personal and professional goals.
Jason is married to his wonderful wife, Toni. They share an awesome son named Blake, and have a couple of cats and a dog that they adore. Jason and his wife have been caregivers to four amazing children in the past, with whom they are still close. In his free time, Jason enjoys watching sports, golfing, fishing, traveling, going to church, and spending quality time with friends and family.
