Jason Lentz

Jason Lentz was born on July 7, 1985, in Elkins West Virginia. He grew up in a small town called Diana in Webster County WV. Throughout his childhood, he watched his father Melvin Lentz (The King of Lumberjacks) compete all over the United States. Jason had little interest in wood chopping until around the age of 13, where he competed in his first event in the Webster County Wood chopping Festival. It was the first junior division championship held in the US and came out with a win. When he returned home after college, he had the opportunity to go to China, to perform in lumberjack exhibitions off and on for three years. When Lentz returned home for good he really set his sights on becoming a professional lumberjack like his father. Timber Sports runs in the Lentz family, and is one of the oldest names in the sport dating back to the early 30’s. Jason is a 4th generation lumberjack. Jason Lentz competed for the first time in The Stihl Timber Sports series in 2010 and has been competing professionally ever since.
