Great Valley Graduate Overcomes Traumatic Brain Injury to Earn MBA

(Penn State News) — Aug. 29, 2019, changed everything for Jason Herman, a 2023 Penn State Great Valley graduate. He had been accepted to Saint Joseph’s University’s Executive MBA program and received a promotion to global project manager at JP Morgan.

He was working from home that day but drove to the office to attend a party being held for him. Herman was on his motorcycle, going the speed limit and wearing proper protective gear. Then, a car pulled out in front of him, and they collided.

Among a litany of other injuries, Herman’s chest was crushed and he sustained a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), the most serious of the three types of TBIs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CONTINUE
