Wherever Marlee Matlin, an award-winning deaf actress, goes, her sign language interpreter Jack Jason is at her side.
If you look hard you can also see me doing a line here and there on shows like Jason: It was an honor to [interpret] for Marlee when she won the Academy Award.
[When] I spoke on her behalf, I flashed back to when I was eight years old [and] wrote in a school journal that it was my aspiration to have my voice be heard by millions of people as a DJ or a TV announcer. The moment was even sweeter as Marlee thanked her parents and I spoke those words, knowing my parents were in the audience too. One of the funniest moments interpreting for Marlee came when she had just given birth to her second child, and [made an] appearance at a National Girl Scout gathering.
Right now, I am in various stages of pre-production on a variety of projects for Marlee to either star [in], produce or both.
Since then, I've played myself on "The Larry Sanders" show, and have been with Marlee on talk shows and award shows.
Eventually, he called me back and offered me a one-day job.
He talked with Verywell about interpreting and being Matlin's business partner. My parents attended the California School for the Deaf in Berkeley, California.No other interpreter in the world has a job quite like him.Through Jack, millions of people in the hearing community get to hear what Marlee has to say.She named it Solo One in honor of her childhood dog Solo.Jason: Everyday starts with checking out the news, and looking over casting notices to see what scripts Marlee would be right for.
