Jason Collins

Academic Advisor

Liaison Major: Biology (Last names A-K)


I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. I earned my AS degree while playing baseball at Columbia State CC in Tennessee. I have always had a passion for sports and the training and preparation that goes into being an athlete. I earned my BS with a major in Exercise Science at Western Kentucky University with a concentration in strength and conditioning. During my senior year I began to pursue a career in coaching. I interned at Vanderbilt University with their highly respected Strength and Conditioning staff working with their basketball, lacrosse, golf, swimming, tennis, bowling, and soccer teams. I then accepted a Graduate Assistant position with the Strength and Conditioning staff at Jacksonville University where I earned my MS in Kinesiology & Biomechanics. While at JU, I worked with the baseball, football, basketball, lacrosse, softball, soccer, rowing, and volleyball teams.


My wife and I have been married since 2015 and in the Jacksonville area since 2018 and absolutely love it here. I enjoy time on the beach, anything outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. I am extremely excited to be a part of the UNF family and look forward to working with you all. Swoop!
