Meet some of our dedicated Simon team members:
Heidi is the owner and founder of Simon Says Stamp. She graduated from Miami University, and since being a young girl, has enjoyed crafting and holds a deep passion for business. Loving to paint by number, create lite-bright designs, and watercolor as a child has evolved to an intense interest now in rubber stamping, card making, and memory keeping. Just recently she began keeping an art journal. Heidi's favorite part of the industry is the people and is thankful every day to be surrounded by such talented and genuine folks. In her free time, Heidi enjoys spending time with her 5 year old son, toddler Abby, golf addicted husband, and dog whom you may recognize - Simon. She is committed to creating the best one stop shopping experience possible for every single customer.
Jason is the Director and founding partner of Simon Says Stamp. In the Spring of 2011, Jason followed his dream to join forces with Heidi and help operate Simon Says Stamp full time. After attending Ohio State University, serving the United States Army and graduating from Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Jason worked in medical sales for more than 10 years. Since 2002 Jason has worked behind the scenes at Simon in every facet, most notably developing our leadership, logistics and technology. Jason is passionate not only about the Simon Family, but also his wife Heidi, and two children. If he captures a spare moment, he loves to golf!
