About Me

Jason Israilov Headshot
Hi all👋 I’m Jason!

I’m Jason Israilov (he/him), a recent graduate from Michigan State University with a major in Computer Science and minor in IT Security Management. My interest in computer science began in middle school as a neophyte programmer when I wrote my first line of code that printed the infamous “Hello, World” text on the screen. 

Fast-forward to today, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have lots of experience working  many different roles such as co-founding a software development company, being a web developer, and a site reliability engineer to name a few.

Noteworthy Projects

Co-presidents Jason Israilov and Jensen Hwa, along with our club sponsor and leader Joshua Barclay presenting to the Board of Education of West Bloomfield High School

One of my proudest achievement was presenting to the school board of the West Bloomfield Board of Education advocating for cleaner energy in the district. After over two years of hard work together with the EARTH Club, we were able to secure a 20kW Solar Array for the West Bloomfield High School with $0 up-front investment requests!  With generous donations, endless fundraising, and grant scholarships we were able to raise $55k of funding and give the West Bloomfield School Board a break-even point is instant with the guarantee of reduced costs and carbon emissions from day one.

Since it was installed in September 2019, the solar array has generated over 34 MWh of energy and saved over 51,300 pounds of CO2 emissions! Check out the 20kW array live data feed for the most up to date numbers.
