Hi! My name is Jason Wieloch and I am so excited to participate in the Dancing Stars of Atlanta this year. I first attended the event in 2017 as a spectator and saw first hand how impactful it was for Alzheimer’s, as well as admired the commitment of the contestants who gave their time and energy over 7-8 months, culminating in a routine in front of over a thousand people. If you had asked me whether I would have entered, I would have said “no way” at the time. However, when the opportunity presented itself in late 2018, I knew I couldn’t pass it up.
I am a native Atlantan, was born at Northside Hospital, and grew up in Suwanee GA. My parents worked hard to get by my entire childhood and sacrificed a lot for us. We never had a lot, but we had more than enough. As a result, I was always very independent, and from a young age I became determined that there never would be a mountain too high or a goal too big. After attending Ole Miss, I moved back to Atlanta, and became a real estate agent within a year of graduation, in the heart of the financial meltdown of 2008. Over the last decade, I’ve built an amazing real estate team (The Wieloch Group), finally landing at Compass in 2018 with seven bright minds and over 60 years combined experience in residential real estate. All of which has been accomplished after starting with less than one hundred dollars to my name. I’ve also traveled the world, visiting over 30 countries and experiencing tremendous personal growth.
This last year, I climbed Mt Kiliminjaro, an incredible journey which took me over 19,000 ft. and challenged my mental and physical abilities. This experience inspired me to say “yes” when I was approached about Dancing Stars, as I knew I could do “anything for 90 seconds” after eight days on the mountain. My grandmother suffers from Alzheimer’s, and her mother did as well, and this is the least I can do to honor her and millions affected each year.
I’m ready to dance for my grandmother in a fight against Alzheimer’s, so help me make an impact that we’ll never forget!
