I had the opportunity to work personally with Jason Parson and his staff and find them to be consummate professionals who are respected in the Kansas City community. Jason has played a vital role in working with J.E. Dunn in communicating the wonderful work of small businesses working on the East Patrol campus project. A small business owner himself, Jason knows that small business is the backbone of the community and that the entire community benefits with each success story.

Chairman, J.E. Dunn Construction

Jason and his team have proven, over and over, their ability to exceed every goal and challenge they are presented with. Jason and his team have the highest level of integrity and work ethic. I look forward to working with P+A for the duration of the airport project, and on other opportunities in the Kansas City market.

Managing Director, Edgemoor

I have had the pleasure of working with members of the Parson + Associates team and find them to be professional, reliable and very knowledgeable of the Kansas City community. Most recently, my political team had the opportunity to work with Jason and his team on the passage of the water bond vote, which authorized $500 million in bonds to go toward upgrading and replacing the City’s aging water system.
Mayor Sly James

Mayor, City of Kansas City

We’ve worked with P+A to deliver a complicated project requiring communications at several levels – with City Hall, stakeholders, neighborhood leaders, the community, special interest groups, you name it. The P+A team has stayed on top of every detail providing good strategies for keeping everyone informed, which has kept the project on track and moving forward.
