Jason Ambassador Profile

Jason Kapcala

WVU Online Student Ambassador
Leadership Studies Graduate Certificate


Jason Kapcala serves as Assistant Director of Captioning and Interpreting for WVU’s Office of Accessibility Services, one of the oldest and most accomplished captioning and interpreting teams in the country.

Prior to his work in Accessibility Services, he served as a college English instructor for nine years. A Pennsylvania native, Jason grew up not far from the ruins of the Bethlehem Steel Works. The cold blast furnaces lit orange by the security lights and the boundless scar of the Number 2 Machine Shop forged a lasting impression. He is the author of the short story collection North to Lakeville (Urban Farmhouse Press, 2017) and the novel Hungry Town (West Virginia University Press, 2022), both of which reimagine places where he has lived.

Jason is a graduate of Penn State University, where he majored in English and minored in Women’s Studies. He went on to earn graduate degrees in from Ohio University and WVU. Most recently, Jason graduated from WVU Online’s Graduate Certificate Program in Leadership Studies, where he focused his studies on “followership” and the Adaptive Leadership approach. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, cooking, rock and roll, traveling to various hot dog stands to find the perfect “West Virginia slaw dog,” and muscling his Dodge Challenger along the twisting back roads of the Mountain State.
