About me
Founder and Instructor
Hello, I'm Jason Gervase, a native of Scottsdale, Arizona, where I was born deaf and raised by a deaf mother. My journey has led me across the globe, with residences in diverse places such as New York, Italy, and Mexico. Holding a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University, I now call Tucson my home.
Since 2010, my unwavering passion has revolved around imparting American Sign Language education, a commitment that remains unshakable. Presently, I hold the position of Senior Lecturer at the University of Arizona, where I have the privilege of sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for ASL with my students. Beyond these borders, I also serve as a Professor at the Siena School of Liberal Arts in Italy, where I teach courses on ASL and Deaf Culture.

In the summer of 2021, I took a leap and started ASL Pinnacle. My aim was simple: to provide a welcoming space for anyone eager to master ASL, without the demands of formal college-level courses.
In addition to being proficient in both ASL and English, I'm fluent in an array of other languages: Italian, Italian Sign Language, Spanish, and Portuguese. This linguistic diversity mirrors my extensive global travels and my resolute commitment to fostering cross-cultural comprehension.
When I'm not immersed in the world of teaching or exploring new horizons, you can find me spending time with my dogs, lifting weights, or hiking.
