My name is Jason Park and I am running to serve as Gwinnett County’s next Superior Court Judge. I am currently an Assistant District Attorney in Gwinnett County, prosecuting drug trafficking and gang cases.
I want to continue the tradition of judicial excellence in Gwinnett. With the retirement of an esteemed judge, a vacancy has been created. The position must be filled with an experienced attorney with a keen knowledge of the law, personal integrity and honor, and who is intimately familiar with the Gwinnett court system.
I humbly but firmly believe I am that person. I am strongly qualified because of the depth of my knowledge of both Georgia law and the Gwinnett judicial system. I have the experience, the commitment to work hard, and the respect of my peers.
My immigrant parents hail from South Korea. They instilled in me not only the importance of education and hard work, but also a strong sense of duty to serve the community. Before attending Brooklyn Law School, I completed my Masters in Divinity from Union Theological Seminary. Only through faith could I understand how I should best dedicate my life to contributing to society.
Today, my job is to keep our communities safe by holding accountable those who commit terrible crimes in our county, and to honor the hard work of law enforcement officers who dedicate their lives to difficult and dangerous work.
During my more than a dozen years as a prosecutor, I learned the importance of being fair, the need to understand the nuances of law, and, most importantly, the courage to do what is right.
It would be my honor and privilege to apply my experience, knowledge, and integrity to serve you as your next Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge.
