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 18 years and is active in his community: he’s served 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 Longmont and Carbon Valley Chambers of Commerce. He races his bicycle as a member of Old School Industries bike team, and does some crazy long distance cycling as a member of the Rocky Mountain Cycling Club. His focus this season is on long distance cycling, and to date he’s finished the AntiEpic Gravel Grinder (200 mile gravel ride), the Rattlesnake Rally (118 mile gravel race), and the Gold Rush Gravel Grinder (110 mile gravel race). He is gearing up for the RMCC Haute Route, which entails riding 750 miles over 6 days in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Oh, and he also enjoys competing in 5k running races when his legs aren’t too tired.
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 good beer, and gardening.
Dr. Kaminski, his wife, Katie, and their children, Kenna and Owen, live in Longmont.
