Jason Hilton
Position: Assistant Coach
Experience: 1st Year

Jason Hilton joined the Stanford men’s rowing coaching staff as an assistant coach in 2014-15.

In his first season at Stanford, Hilton helped lead the team to a bronze medal in the varsity four at the IRA National Championships and 18th place finish in the varsity eight. The team finished fourth at the Pac-12 Championships after the varsity eight earned a bronze medal. Hilton oversaw the novice eight that captured the title at the San Diego Crew Classic early in the season. Seniors Scott Roycroft and Kaess Smit were named to the All-Pac-12 team while Smit was also the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Hilton came to The F­­arm from the Oakland Strokes where he coached the Varsity men to silver medals at the Youth National Championships in 2013 and 2014.

Prior to coaching at the varsity level, Hilton was the novice head coach for seven years, pushing his crews onto the medal stand in six of seven seasons.

Hilton graduated from the University of Washington in 2003 with a bachelor of fine arts degree in sculpture. After rowing for two years, including a 5th place finish at the IRA in the 4-, he switched to rugby and helped lead the Huskies to the top of the North West division. He received the most improved player award.

He continues to pursue passions in both rowing and sculpture. While coaching at Stanford, he is also an assistant to David Ruth at the Glass Sculpture Studio in Oakland.

Jason lives with his wife Kathleen in Alameda. Kathleen is finishing her masters and doctoral studies in nursing.
