Jason Confer is a taxidermist located in Aaronsburg, Pa. Jason believes that taxidermy in an art form, and he uses it as an outlet to bring life to something that has died. His wife, Crystal Confer, is supportive of his passion, and although she found it a little unsettling at the beginning of their relationship, she respects that he always keeps his workspace clean. All of Jason’s work is done in the families dining room, and the finished products are displayed throughout their house. Jason’s oldest son (11) was following in his footsteps but has recently lost interest in taxidermy and prefers to play video games. With hopes that one day he can spread his knowledge in the art to someone, Jason continues to practice taxidermy and perfect his abilities.
