Jason McCartney

On Application
Australia - Vic

Jason McCartney became a national hero in the wake of the Bali Bombings and epitomises the Australian fighting spirit. His story is one of humanity overcoming adversity. Jason, a young Australian with an exceptional talent to play Australian Rules Football, was thrust into the hearts and minds of all Australians through his courageous fight-back from horrible burns he suffered in Bali.

Few will forget his triumphant return to AFL football. He helped in scoring the winning goal, but his ultimate glory was a victory over terrorism and a "win" for all those who survived Bali. Jason was awarded an OAM.

Jason started his career when he was drafted at pick number 4 in the National Draft by the Collingwood Football Club. Following 4 seasons with the Pies, Jason crossed over to the Adelaide Crows where he spent another 3 seasons. Jason then returned to Victoria, playing the next 6 seasons for his beloved Kangaroos. He was inducted into the AFL 200 Games Club.

Jason is a remarkable guest speaker with an amazing ability to inspire audiences with accounts of how he overcame adversity through amazing support from family, friends and team mates. Jason is also involved with many charities, including Life Support @ The Alfred Foundation and K.I.D.S Foundation.

Jason is currently employed by the Western Bulldogs Football Club as the List Manager overseeing player contracting along with the clubs trading and drafting processes.
