Jas was born in London and had previously worked in the nuclear fission industry before pivoting to a career in Antarctic science. Jas was working as an Electronics engineer at Halley station on the Brunt Ice shelf, tracking the break-up of the ice shelf by installing GPS and laser trackers along Chasm 1. After he found himself on the JCR, a science cruise ship conducting research in the southern ocean. Jas then spent 18 months at Rothera base on the peninsula tracking aurora and maintaining the communication infrastructure for the base. After that, he spent 2 months flew flying around the continent and camping to install remote scientific instrumentation and fuel depots to ensure future science could be facilitated. One notable project was Beamish in which he was in charge of removing instrumentation 2000m under the ice down a borehole.
