Jason Maxwell joined Fox 2 and KPLR 11 in April 2017 as the Nissan Rogue Runner Reporter and Photojournalist.

Prior to moving to St. Louis Jason was a photojournalist at WSMV Nashville Tennessee. He covered a variety of high profile like the high profile rape trial of two former Vanderbilt University football players and the July 16th murder of five U.S. service members.

Maxwell majored in communication at Freed Hardeman University. Jason has always had a passion for the news. His mom said he always ask “WHY” as a child. One of his strongest points is interview and asking the question why getting the facts.

“My Mom And Dad are my example of how to live life, and how to make a living. I also admire Marshall Keeble who was a preacher of the Church Of Christ. He made a tremendous contribution for people all around the world,” said Jason Maxwell.

When Jason is not in the Nissan Rogue Runner you can find him flying model remote control helicopter and airplane.

Jason Resides in Belleville Illinois.
