Jason Brown Headed to White House

The Highland Park Olympian will meet the President Thursday.

When Highland Park Olympian Jason Brown contemplates meeting President Obama on Thursday he — you guessed it — puts his hands to his head in his trademark look of excitement and says he can’t believe it’s going to happen.

“I don’t know how I’m going to handle it,” Brown said on the Today Show Wednesday. “I’m going to be shaking so much.”

Brown has been similarly enthusiastically overwhelmed about all of his fame and accomplishments since making the Olympic team this winter.

After his White House event, he’ll be performing in “Stars on Ice” with a May 3 local performance at the Allstate Arena, according to NBC5.

You can watch Brown’s full Today Show interview above.
