Jason Van Dyke was raised a Master Mason in Benjamin B. French Lodge, No. 15 in DC in 2006, and in 2009 he helped found The Colonial Lodge, No. 1821, a University Lodge affiliated with the George Washington University, where he was the founding Senior Warden and is a Past Master. Jason is a 32°, K.C.C.H. in the DC Scottish Rite, and a Frater of the SRCIF. In 2015, he was awarded the Valentine Reintzel Medal for meritorious service to the Grand Lodge of DC.
While historical studies initially attracted him to Freemasonry (he researched and produced a short documentary on the building of the House of the Temple in Washington, DC), today Jason is mostly interested in building and improving the initiatic experience for the new members of his Lodge. He is also interested in the deeper, psychological mechanics of Masonic ritual.
Jason holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Communication (Magna Cum Laude) from the George Washington University and enjoys long walks on the beach and holding hands. And puppies. If you don’t love puppies, you’re a monster.
