THE T.A.P.S TEAM

Jason Abrams
Katie Mayers

Executive Director

Managing Director 

Jason joined the Marine Corps right after graduating high school.  As soon as he got to boot camp he knew he was in for a life changing experience.  The training and what was expected of him was more than he could ever imagine.  As difficult as the training was, it was minuscule compared to the confidence and maturity he gained.  The lessons he learned about integrity, camaraderie, determination, responsibility, compassion, and many other things are the principles that guide his life today.

 

In 2014, Jason was holding his infant son and listening to the news when he heard a young soldier was killed in the Middle East, leaving a wife and children.  Unfortunately, he heard this story too many times before but this time it really hit home.  His thoughts went to the family and particularly to the kids, and what they would be missing.  It became personal and very emotional, and that’s when Jason decided to do something for the families of the fallen.

 

Jason’s business background is primarily in residential real estate.  He knew nothing about grief counseling or other social services that would be so important to these families, yet he wanted to help. He started to explore what housing benefits were given to these families that lost so much.  He found that there was no or very little help for them. They were not able to use the VA loan program, nor was there a down payment or mortgage assistance program available for them.  Because of this void Jason founded True American Patriot Services or TAPS.
