Jason was a lieutenant in the Army Reserve, according to the outlet.
Shannon described him as “a true and honest shooter, a great officer and leader of his men.”
Jason was seen on the show’s second season in 2014 in the midst of his marriage to Brazilian native Cassia Tavares. The couple later separated in 2017 and divorced the following year.
According to US Weekly, the couple initially crossed paths on Facebook when Tavares was dating a friend. After that relationship ended, Hitch and Tavares sought out a romance.

Tavares told the Tampa Bay Times in 2014 of their romance, ‘Before we were a couple, we were best friends. It’s hard to find that kind of connection with someone.
Hitch told Radar in February of 2019 that his contacts with Tavares were ‘friendly and civilized’ in the wake of their split.
He said that the main factor in their separation was due to a “lack of communication”, and that he had hoped for a “future marriage”.
Hitch said at the time: “I’m not dating anyone now, but I still believe in love. I am a Hollywood type guy. I’ll work on my body, keep reading, keep making money, and I’ll find out! “
He had previously told the outlet in 2018, “A successful relationship is communication, physical attraction, and doing whatever it takes. Now is the time to go in different directions. I think we’ll still be friends. She knows I put her best interests at heart.”
He told the outlet that Tavares “didn’t come here just to become a US citizen”, as she “had a good life in Brazil” and “was about to finish college.
He added, “She shouldn’t have married me.”
