Mr. Soukup is passionate about bringing joy, wellness, and community to families in New Hampshire. He graduated from Western New England University with a Bachelors of Science in Finance and a Masters in Healthcare Administration, and worked within the healthcare arena for over 20 years. In recent years, he has led several groups towards better physical, emotional and spiritual health through the startup of several unique fitness initiatives. He started a non-profit CrossFit gym that was missionally focused within the community (for which he holds a CrossFit Level 1 Certification as a trainer); he advocates for bicycle infrastructure and other active modes of transportation within the city of Manchester through his work with ManchesterMoves. During the beginning of the 2022-23 school year, he became best known as “Mr. Jason”, the fearless leader of the Bike Bus, along with his dog Maple, which has also brought joy, community and wellness to many of our students at Mount Zion. Mr. Soukup enjoys physical activities outdoors, especially with his wife Betsy and three kids (MZ classes of ’29, ’31, ’34).
