I never planned on running for office. While I always believed in serving my country, running for office was something for politicians, not me. I joined the army at eighteen and served for seven years before becoming an engineer, working to build better cities. I believed I did my duty and I did it well and my country gave me plenty back: I had a job I loved, a community I adored, and I was eagerly awaiting the birth of my first child.
And then everything changed. My daughter was born and diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. This meant months of constant doctors, nights on uncomfortable hospital beds, and carefully moving IVs and breathing tubes to hold my baby girl as she was connected to life-saving machines.
As my wife and I struggled through those difficult times, Tallahassee politicians began cutting back on funding for heart research and options for medical care, leaving thousands of families like mine without access to the very doctors that had saved my daughter’s life. I knew I had to step up and fight for those families that need a voice in Tallahassee. Now I am running because Tallahassee isn’t serving our people anymore, just the special interests and it’s time for that to stop.
As your next Florida State Representative I will work to:
Support Florida’s education system
Protect our water and natural environment
Defend local control for our cities
Ensure everyone has access to affordable healthcare
Stand up to special interests and bring common sense ethics reform
I have known Jason for years, and he has earned my respect. He knows how to get things done and is a man of his word. As a father of two daughters, I have witnessed Jason’s compassion, and that same compassion extends to his community and the state of Florida. He will serve us with honor in Tallahassee and I trust him to get the job done.

Jason represents the change we need in Tallahassee. Our current legislature has sent Florida to near the bottom among the states in per capita funding for education, healthcare, and mental health treatment. Even worse has been the annual misappropriation of affordable housing and land conservation trust funds. Jason will represent us with the professional expertise and moral compass that we deserve.
Jason’s ability to focus on pragmatic solutions while remaining compassionate and empathetic is a trait that will serve our community well in Tallahassee. As a friend, I know that his daughters and his desire for a better Florida for all of us inform his politics and decision making. He is knowledgable, qualified, and laser-focused on reversing failed policies. I’m proud to support Jason Haeseler for Florida House of Representatives, District 21.
I’m proud to support Jason Haeseler for Florida House. As a former member of our armed services, his commitment to public service is clear. As a professional engineer, his understanding of our state’s unmet infrastructure needs is vital and, as the father of a young daughter with medical challenges, I trust him to challenge the health care status quo.
