Testimonial: All good things must come to an end.

“When COMM 1008 culminated on August 10, I was reminded of the adage, ‘All good things must come to an end.’ It was a wonderful experience listening to your classes from my last bench. I could proudly say that we have had precious evening hours during COMM1007 and 1008 getting to know the techniques of technical writing and editing. I look forward to working with you in the technical writing world in the near future.”

Great work! What a powerful set of documents

“Yesterday in our working sessions with our inter-provincial customer, they complimented the product document suite. Not only are they starting to realise what a powerful set of documents it is for them, but they also said it presented a really professional image for our product — in fact, they asked if our actual product was as mature as we’re making it look. Great work!”

Deborah Hazebroek, Technical Writer, ENBALA Power Networks Inc.

I appreciate the words of wisdom Jason shared in class about persevering and being open to all kinds of writing as a technical writer. Those words were valuable when I began my technical writing role as part of a sales team. It involves a lot of proposal writing, which walks a nice line between informative and persuasive writing. I’m using my strengths, but expanding the scope of my writing skills as well.

Lori Freedman, “Can I take you to all of my concerts?”

YOU

ARE

WONDERFUL!!!

Just read this article and want to share it widely. It’s to me perfect journalism – it describes and reports and provokes in a way that allows the reader to vamp on your ideas without having necessarily attended the event themselves…it seems entirely organic, almost subconscious!!! Can I take you to all of my concerts?

And by the way, thanks jason. You are boss!!!!

Michael Murray, Music Director, St. Philip’s Anglican Church Dunbar

Jason Hall wowed the audience with a performance that was both lyrical and haunting. Performing three works on the Hungarian Tárogató (his instrument of choice) he conveyed the beauty and richness of that country’s folk tradition. It was a treat for the listeners. Perhaps the most thrilling work was a solo nationalistic composition that was cheeky and playful while being dignified at the same time. With a grace note it was suddenly over.

Jason introduced a new way of doing our installation guides, many examples of which I continue to use in the way we do things today.

Jenny Uechi, Managing Editor at The Vancouver Observer

Jason is an incredibly thoughtful and detail-oriented writer and communicator. I’ve worked with him for a few years and have found that not only is his work impressive but he’s a great person to have on a team. His strengths are not just in writing but in public speaking as well. At a recent editorial meeting, he gave a really inspiring speech about writing and putting soul into a story. It was very powerful and moving.
