Jason Brock also believes it’s important to try to make the world a better place, so he gives back to the community – primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. He donates his resources to these organizations: Richomond Ermet Aid Foundation (REAF), the San Francisco Unified Lions Club, Alice B.

Jason Brock collaborates with many diverse and excellent musicians and singers, as well. You’ll usually see him performing with his pianist, Dee Spencer. Dianthe “Dee” Spencer is a Professor and Chair of Music in the School of Music at San Francisco State University where she founded the jazz studies undergraduate degree program in 1990. She earned and Ed.D from the University of San Francisco; M.M. from Washington University in St. Louis; and a B.S. from Florida A&M University. Dee served on the piano faculty at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Dee served on the governing boards of the International Association for Jazz Education (IAJE) and the SF Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). She currently serves on the board of the Community Music Center. In May 2015, Dee worked with Wynton Marsalis as a judge for the annual Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington Competition.
As far as Jason Brock’s personal life, he was born in East Texas, and then moved all over the country with his family – no they weren’t a military family – he’s still trying to figure out why they moved so much during his childhood. Anyway, Jason has lived in many places, but finally settled in San Francisco, California. It’s a great place for him to live because it’s diverse, beautiful, has an interesting political scene, and San Francisco was featured in several of the books (Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin, Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, The Color Purple [writer Alice Walker lives near the city]), that inspired Jason to live as his true self. He now resides at home with his partner and dog (not the same person) with a beautiful view of the Bay.
