After almost twenty years as drummer for the band, Tenth Avenue North founding member Jason Jamison announced that tonight was his last night on stage with the group. "Today is an emotional day because it marks the last Tenth Ave Tour date that I will be behind the kit. It has been an honor to be a small part of something that has had such a huge impact. God has done incredible things through this music and I have been humbled over and over again by hearing those crazy stories of how a simple song can be used for grand things," he shared via a social media post.

"In February I made a decision to come off the road and spend more time at home with my family. I did not have any plans for work, but knew that God was bringing me to a new place in life. Just as it was when we begun this band, it seemed as if God was asking me to obey and trust he was in control," he continued. 

Jason followed the news of his departure with the announcement that he won't be completely gone from activity with the band: "After about 6 weeks of digesting this decision and praying for wisdom I was presented with an opportunity to interview for a job that has had my attention for years. In fact, my wife would always tell me that if I wasn't in the band this was a job I should consider. I am so excited to announce that 2 days ago I accepted a job with an organization I have loved and supported for 16 years. Beginning in July I will be working with Compassion to help artists just like Tenth Avenue North get impoverished children all over the world sponsored and release them from poverty in Jesus name."

"Today is a mixed bag of emotions. Change is typically very hard, but also very good. I am sad to say goodbye to the stage. I am glad that I don't have to say goodbye to the family I have made on the road. I am so excited to be home with my wife and four kids. And I am more than honored to be part of the Compassion team and I look forward to the new adventure God has for me," Jason concluded.
