Dr. Jason Kaminski
Dr. Jason Kaminski was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. He is a graduate of The Ohio State University, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition in 1992. He went on to attend the New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA, completing his Doctorate of Optometry degree in 1996.
In 1995, Dr. Kaminski was awarded the Seymour Galina Grant for his essay “Professionalism and Ethics”. Dr. Kaminski has also been published in both the Journal of Behavioral Optometry in 1995, and in optometry’s major publication, the Journal of the American Optometric Association in 1997. Dr. Kaminski belongs to the American and Colorado Optometric Associations, as well as being a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry.
In addition to his professional life as an eye doctor, Dr. Kaminski has lived in Longmont for 20 years and is active in his community: he has been involved on the Longmont Museum Advisory Board, is a past president of the Longmont Twin Peaks Rotary Club, and has been a member of both the Carbon Valley and Longmont Chambers of Commerce. He is a member of Old School Industries Bicycle Racing Team and the Rocky Mountain Cycling Club. In 2018, he enjoyed cycling over the Continental Divide, more than once! He hasn’t planned his 2020 adventures yet, but in 2019 he did some gravel riding and racing, including the RMCC Pawnee Butte Grasslands and the Tour de Steamboat. He also conquered the Pike’s Peak Ascent for the 3rd time, and ran the scenic but difficult Lead King Loop where he was able to see up close the photogenic Crystal Mill.
He is an avid Ohio State Buckeyes football fan, and has been known to schedule his autumn Saturdays around the Buckeye’s television football schedule. In addition to running and cycling, his other interests include spending time with his family (of course!), drinking craft beer, and gardening.
Dr. Kaminski, his wife, Katie, and their children, Kenna and Owen, live in Longmont.
