Jason Moss, Senior Marketing Consultant
Jason has been a Brock Associates Marketing Consultant since 2005 and currently operates a branch office in Quincy, Ill. As a Senior Marketing Consultant, Jason works with a variety of producers across the country in developing and implementing marketing plans to best manage their price risk—from the undersold to oversold, small to large, and knowledgeable experts to inexperienced beginners.
The greatest concentration of clients he works with is in the South, as he has led the company’s expansion into cotton and rice consulting from corn, soybeans and wheat. Jason’s competitive advantage is his ability to discuss real farm management decisions with real perspective—a refreshing and helpful edge that comes from direct interest and involvement in his family’s corn, hog, and farm management enterprises.

Jason’s pursuit of agricultural and business education includes a B.S. degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Illinois, a M.S. degree in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University and a M.B.A. from Indiana University.
