Hi, I'm Jason Chase. I was born in Albany and grew up here until 14 years old. I moved to Lodi, California for high school where after I started my own business delivering escrow documents.
I returned to Oregon in 2008, and pursued an education in engineering. 2008 was also the year that I met my wife and business partner, Rebecca. We made our first home purchase in 2015 and have since welcomed our three sons, Micah, Avery and Marcus.
I enjoy everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer, including camping, hiking, rock climbing and rafting. I also like to spend time taking things apart and putting them back together, learning about the various ways in which things work. I am analytical, investigative, curious, determined, thorough and always in pursuit of answers.
I have always been fascinated by the way things work, especially houses. There are so many components, so many systems built into a structure to work together. I love being a home inspector because I get to inspect these systems and help educate people about them. I get to see new things on a regular basis. No two houses are the same.
I am a third generation home inspector. My grandfather, Russell Ehlers, started doing home inspections in 1982. Russell was able to share his love of the industry with his son-in-law, my dad, Jay Chase. Jay Chase Full Home Inspections was founded 20 years ago in the Willamette Valley as well. After years of watching experts in their field, I knew that I would thrive in the business of home inspecting and founded
Chase Cutting Edge Inspections in 2017.
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This, I promise you
