When he actually has some free time, Jason enjoys camping trips with Andrew's Cub Scout Den, and playing Minecraft with his twins.

Father of five, grandfather of two, Weston Nordgren II has teamed up with his wife of 30 years to advocate for the Nightscout Project and Open Source solutions that help alleviate the suffering of those struggling with type 1 diabetes. With the T1D diagnosis of their son 7 years ago at 12 months of age, it became very apparent that the tools available for the care of those suffering from T1D were insufficient. Weston and his wife have made it their mission in life to passionately advocate for real life solutions found in the #WeAreNotWaiting community.

James Wedding is the President of the Board of Directors of the Nightscout Foundation, a non-profit seeking to deliver open-source tools to live a life less impacted by type 1 diabetes. In February of 2011, James' daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and he began searching for technology solutions to the challenges ahead. Years later, discovering a quickly growing community of patients and caregivers that have given up on the industry and on the FDA, James has become part of a worldwide movement to free health care from the current rules. A rallying cry of #WeAreNotWaiting has catalyzed over 10,000 to adopt an open-source solution for a portion of type 1 diabetes care, and has spurred new conversations across the entire industry.
