Jason Silas "Jase" Robertson is a television star on the A&E reality television show Duck Dynasty, the COO of the business Duck Commander, an innovator, and a "professional" duck hunter. Robertson lives in West Monroe, Louisiana with his wife, Missy, and his three children Reed, Cole and Mia.[1] Robertson is known for avoiding work in favor of hunting and fishing, speaking "duckinese", and for his self-proclaimed frog hunting abilities. He calls himself "a frog's worst nightmare".[2]

Childhood[edit]

Jase was born August 16, 1969 to Phil Robertson and Marsha "Kay" Robertson in Bernice, Louisiana. Phil and Kay gave him the middle name of Silas, naming him after his uncle Silas Robertson, Phil's brother. Growing up with his father as the town's Duck Commander, Jase Robertson wanted to spend as much time with him as possible, going on various hunting expeditions to strengthen their bond. Soon, Jase developed the same passion for the sport that his dad has. From the age of 8, Jase wanted to spend as much time in the rugged lifestyle in the woods as possible, even missing the maximum possible amount of school days as allowed by Louisiana law.[3]

Business with Duck Commander[edit]

With his brother Willie as the CEO of the business, Jase Robertson is the COO of Duck Commander. Robertson's job at Duck Commander is to fabricate the duck calls made by the company, fine tune them, and to invent new ones.[4] It takes him about 2–3 minutes to make one duck call. One of Jase's inventions is a duck call called the "Triple Threat", a duck call which utilizes three reeds instead of the usual two.

Duck Dynasty[edit]

Jase Robertson is one of the stars of A&E's reality show Duck Dynasty. He is portrayed as a foil for Willie Robertson, and often acts as a mischief maker.

Jase said he thought that the show would never take off as a popular series. He stated in an interview with Fox News' Todd Starnes that:

"I was one of the ones who said the reality show would never work...We were in the hunting world. I had this perception of reality shows that you had to have all this friction and fits of rage and four-letter words...We’re pretty calm compared to that...We’ve got some crazy characters in our family — but I didn’t think people would want to see that.”[5]

Jase Robertson is also known for his Christian faith, his ZZ Top style beard, his beanie that he wears, and his enunciation of words.
