Jason started swimming when he was 10 years old and he started swimming for the Northbrook Spartan Swim Club during his freshman year in high school. An eight-time All-American, Jason was the captain of his high school team during his senior year, and he was the team MVP since his sophomore year. He was also a four-year varsity letter winner. Jason's most memorable athletic experience would be when he dropped a second and a half in 100 butterfly from prelims to finals at the state meet during his junior year. He ended up going a 51.16 that was good enough for third place. In high school, Jason was a member of the National Honors Society and the Varsity Club. He won the Most Outstanding Male Athlete Award of his high school during his senior year and he was also a finalist for the Outstanding Boy Award. Jason left high school with many school and pool records. He chose Yale for its tradition of excellence in academics and athletics and for the camaraderie and unity of the Yale swim team. He also hopes to help continue and contribute to the success of the swim team. Jason is the son of Tom and Inja Choi and he is an only child. He would like to thank his parents for the immense amount of support and encouragement they have constantly provided him.
