President & CEO
After studying commercial tourism in undergrad followed by a masters degree in business administration, Jason was destined to end up in the travel industry. He began his career at a few large internet startups before spending a year backpacking around the world. In 2008, while working with the Sundance Film Festival, he proposed building a booking engine for their site. From the technology, RootRez was born. When not in his office chair, you can find Jason in his bike saddle, powering past you on the up hills, out traveling the world, or spending time with his wife and two kids.
VP of Sales & Business Development
Born and raised in a ski family, Mark fell into the travel technology industry while working on the sales team at MountainReservations.com. After receiving his M.B.A., Mark joined the RootRez team in 2013, when it was simply Sundance Lodging Services. In 2016, he stepped into the role of Executive Director and now runs all of our sales, customer service, market management, and business development operations. On any powder day, you’ll find Mark whooping and hollering down the mountain and on sunny days, you’ll find him coaching his son’s soccer team, watching his daughter act and sing, or crushing Jason at ping pong.

He is passionate about his work making other's lives easier and always strives to give people what they ask for. He loves solving coding puzzles and building creative solutions. When not working, his favorite places to be are the Oregon coast during the summer and his garage full of more hobbies and interests than you can shake a Delta Industrial 46-460 12-1/2-Inch Variable-Speed Mini Lathe at.

Operations Analyst & A/R Admin

Between juggling school and all things operational and accounts receivable here at Rootrez, Isabelle is an avid traveler. You may find her hiking, backpacking, camping or even deep sea fishing. Mexico is her favorite deep sea fishing spot. When she is relaxing, which is rare, you will find her tackling Sudoku, puzzles and cleaning projects or hanging with her dogs and spending time on her ranch in Heber.
Born and raised in a small central Utah town, Logan moved to Salt Lake in 2014 after studying Accounting in Logan, Utah at Utah State University. Logan in Logan? He knows, what a coincidence. He then completed his Masters in Accounting while working as the Controller of a local Manufacturing firm. When Logan isn't being your typical boring accountant he loves to ride his mountain bike, snowboard and/or fly fish with his wife. It is best when some or all of those can happen on the same day. He has beaten Jason twice in ping pong. Mark taught Logan how to play darts and has regretted his decision since that day. Logan and his wife welcomed their first child, a son, this past September.
