Career

Military:

Fox joined the Royal Marine Commandos at 16, serving for 10 years, after which he passed the gruelling selection process for the Special Forces, serving with the Special Boat Service. He also trained as a combat swimmer, demolitions expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert.[1]

As part of his service, Jason planned and led operations including hostage rescue, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, maritime counter terrorism, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions.[2]

He was diagnosed with PTSD and medically discharged in 2012.[3]

Television:

Fox used his wealth of experience in the Special Forces to support television production crews who were working in environmentally hostile areas including the jungle, the arctic, the desert and at sea.

This included a role as the support diver for the archaeological team that found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd - one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century - just off the coast of Madagascar.[4]

From this he was contacted about working on a television show exploring the selection process for the Special Forces which turned into his first front of the camera role for Channel 4’s prime-time hit show, SAS: Who Dares Wins. The series follows 30 contestants each season who are put through the SAS’s selection process in the ultimate test of their physical and – more importantly – psychological resilience. The successful series has been praised for drawing in a significant share of young audiences and receiving critical acclaim.

Jason’s success in SAS: Who Dares Wins led to him taking on the role of presenter in Channel 4’s flagship show for 2018, Meet the Drug Lords: Inside the Real Narcos. In the series Jason visited Mexico, Columbia and Peru meeting the very people he once fought against, from the cartel leaders to the hitmen, smugglers and dealer they employ.  

Record Breaker

In 2016 Jason was part of Team Essence, a five man crew that rowed the longest route across the Atlantic Ocean in aid of the NSPCC. Setting off from Lagos in Portugal it took 50 days to reach Venezuela, completing a 3,308-nautical-mile journey and becoming the first ever team to row non-stop and unsupported across the Atlantic from mainland Europe to mainland South America.[5]

Charity work

As well rowing the Atlantic for the NSPCC, Jason has trekked to the North Pole for the charity Borne to help raise money for research into premature birth. It is a cause close to his heart as Jason himself was born two months premature.

In 2015 Jason co-founded Rock 2 Recovery. The organisation helps to fight against stress in our armed forces, veterans and their families. He is also an ambassador for Veterans 4 Wildlife that supports the prevention of wildlife crime and has lent support to Movember to raise awareness for prostate cancer.[6]

Corporate

Jason regularly provides keynote speeches and live experiences for organisations and businesses as well as motivational and team building workshops through the organisation Break-Point. Jason set up Break-Point in 2015 with fellow SAS: Who Dares Wins DS, Matthew Ollerton. The workshops are designed to replicate pressurised environments by designing packages for the ultimate team building exercise including being put thorough challenging and gruelling military drills.[7]

Book

Jason co-authored his first book in 2017 SAS: Who Dares Wins: Leadership Secrets from the Special Forces with his fellow TV presenters and special forces colleagues Antony Middleton, Matthew Ollerton and Colin Maclachlan.

In November 2018 Jason will release his own autobiography, Battle Scars. It tells the story of his career as an elite operator, from the gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined his service, to a battle of a very different kind: the psychological devastation of combat that ultimately forced him to leave the military, and the hard reality of what takes place in the mind of a man once a career of imagined invincibility has come to an end.[8]
