    TIGNALL, GA, April 03, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Jason Smith has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Drawing on years of professional experience in business continuity, Mr. Smith excels as the director of business continuity and crisis management for Wellstar Health System, the second-largest hospital system in Georgia. In this capacity, he manages the hospital system's business continuity program and ensures that the clinical department can continue providing patient care and safety in a crisis. Likewise, he collaborates with the hospital's crisis management team to ensure the program runs smoothly. Alongside his work with Wellstar Health, Mr. Smith formally handled business continuity management for Atos North America and Anthelio Healthcare Solutions.

During the early stages of his career, Mr. Smith gained valuable expertise in the field as the project manager of Plexent and as the site receiving manager for Perot Systems. With Perot, he assisted various customers, including Stanford University, in moving data centers and setting up recovery for those systems. Additionally, he helped set up the ACH backup systems for Bank of America. An expert in his field, Mr. Smith earned an associate degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the Ohio Institute of Technology in 1978. Subsequently, he expanded his professional knowledge, earning a mass disaster and fatality response certification through the Texas Division of Emergency Management and a business continuity and crisis management certification from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Outside of his work, Mr. Smith has served on the board of directors for the City of Rowlett's Community Emergency Response Teams and the board of advisors for Texas Baptist Men's Southern Baptist Disaster Relief. Devoted to those less fortunate, he also participated in relief trips to Haiti and Sri Lanka. On his trip to Haiti, he helped feed children from several orphanages with the aid of U.S. disaster relief organizations and Samaritan's Purse. Through the Texas Baptist Men's Disaster Relief team, Mr. Smith also tended to the emotional and spiritual needs of the people in the village of Kalmunai, Sri Lanka.

In light of his professional achievements, Mr. Smith received the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Dallas Police Department and the Brazilian Medal of Freedom Award from the Vice President of Brazil. Similarly, he served as the keynote speaker at the Disaster Recovery Journal, a bi-yearly conference for professionals in business continuity disaster recovery. While his career has been filled with highlights, he takes the most pride in providing disaster response and emergency management support in Brazil and volunteering in relief efforts after the explosion of the Columbia space shuttle over Texas.

Though hard work and dedication have brought him far in his career, Mr. Smith credits his success to his desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Looking ahead, he intends to move into a place with enough space for him and his wife, Kathy to pursue their passion for rescuing animals.
