Jason Gjertsen returns to coach at TCC where he was a 2-time NWAACC All-Star in both 1999 & 2000, as well as a member of the 2000 NWAACC Championship soccer team.  Gjertsen was named MVP of the 2000 NWAACC Championship Tournament and scored 13 goals in the 2000 season.

Jason is a graduate of Wilson High School where he played 4 years of varsity soccer.  During his high school career, he scored 55 goals and had 45 assists.  He was named MVP of the Narrows League in 1998 where he led the league with 21 goals and 20 assists.  The Rams qualified for the state playoff tournament 3 out of 4 seasons.

After his career at TCC, Jason went to play at Evergreen State College from 2002-2004.  While at Evergreen, Jason was First Team, All Cascade Conference in 2002.  In 2004, he was selected to Second Team, All Cascade Conference.  He helped lead Evergreen to a NAIA Region One Championship in 2004, where the school finished 5th at the National Tournament, best in school history.

In addition to his high school, community college, and college success, Jason has continued a career with the PASL Semi-Professional indoor soccer team, the Tacoma Stars.  While playing for the Stars from 2004-2010, he was selected to the PASL All-Star team in 2004, 2005, and 2008.  In 2004 and 2010, Jason and the Stars won the PASL National Championship.

The TCC program definitely benefits academically and athletically with Jason at the helm.  His experience as a high impact player at various levels of the game is a strong recruiting tool and makes him a great role model for the young men and women he coaches.  In addition to coaching at TCC, Jason is also the head coach of the boys’ varsity soccer team at Wilson High School.

Jason is currently on the WPFC Coaching Staff at Washington Premier.
