Jason White gives back to WSU by supporting Eck Stadium project



Shock The World
Jason White
Shocker Baseball
'91 - '92

Jason White has had a successful career since his days in 1991-92 on the WSU baseball team. He played for the Oakland As for three seasons before returning to Wichita in 1996 and working the next 16 years for various aviation companies. In 2012, he moved to Aero-Mach, where he’s been president the past five years. He attributes much of his success to his time at WSU.

“I’ve been able to use my experience at Wichita State in the business world by showing the importance of teamwork and the accomplishments that can be produced when you work together,” White says. “I’m appreciative of the opportunity Wichita State gave me.”

With that in mind, White chose to give back by donating to the campaign to complete the fifth and final phase of the Eck Stadium development plan.

“Wichita State has always been known for having a first-class facility,” White says. “For us to attract talent away from other schools, we must continue to make the student-athlete experience better than that being offered elsewhere.”

During White’s time at WSU, the Shockers played in the College World Series in both ’91 and ’92 and posted a combined record of 122 wins and 24 losses. They were the runner-up team in 1991, losing to Louisiana State in the championship game.

“My memories of playing in front of 7,000-plus people at Eck Stadium are the fondest memories I have during my baseball career,” White says. “The relationships I established with my teammates and coaches during those times can never be repeated.”
