An Evening with Jason Fox
PERFORMANCE TIME: 8PM
Jason Fox is a former Royal Marines Commando and Special Forces Sergeant. These days you are most likely to find him on our film & television screens and giving us a taste of action and adventure around the world.
Jason 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 Air Service/Special Boat Service. He’s planned and led operations including hostage rescue, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, maritime counter terrorism, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions. Jason also trained as a combat swimmer, demolitions expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert.
He left the Special Forces in 2012, moving in to the TV and Film industry, initially by using his wealth of experience in the Special Forces to support production crews who were working in environmentally hostile areas, such as the jungle, the arctic or the desert. It was during this period that Jason was one of the divers that found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd – one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century – just off the coast of Madagascar.
Jason then went on to star in front of the camera for Channel 4’s first series of prime-time hit show, SAS WHO DARES WINS. We are now on series 3 of the successful series, which has been praised for drawing in a significant share of young audiences and receiving critical acclaim.
August 2018 sees Jason’s new primetime, ground-breaking and channel first series, ‘THE REAL LIFE NARCOS’ airing on Channel4. Hailed as their flagship show for the year, Jason goes back to the frontlines of the drug war to confront the kind of criminals he once targeted. Jason travels to the heart of Cartel territory in Mexico, Peru and Columbia meeting cocaine cooks, cartel enforcers, underworld kingpins and traffickers to understand the complexities of the billion-pound narcotics industry. Jason also takes a producer credit on the series.
With a broad range of experiences, Jason regularly leads and motivates teams in pressurised environments for the corporate world. Designing specific packages for the ultimate team building exercise; where the team can be put through challenging and gruelling Special Forces drills.
Jason is also Co-founder of Rock 2 Recovery (which helps preserve lives of distressed servicemen, veterans and their families) and is an ambassador for Veterans For Wildlife (for the prevention of wildlife crime). Whilst also lending support to Movember to raise awareness for prostate cancer.
Finally, Jason recently set two new world records, in a never been done before row across the Atlantic in aid of the NSPCC.
