We have another new face at Commerce!

Jason Barnes, Business Attraction Specialist

Another transplant to Idaho, Mr. Barnes left Ventura County California to join the Gem State in July 2017. He has a B.A. in Political Science from California State University Channel Islands and a Master’s degree in Public Policy and Administration from California Lutheran University. Mr. Barnes has served as Congresswoman Brownley’s Field Representative where he handled all community and public affairs in her district. Prior to join the Idaho Commerce team, Jason served as the Journal Clerk to the Idaho State Senate during their 2018 legislative session.


One of Mr. Barnes’s passions in life is giving his free time to the YMCA Summer Camp Program. Every summer for the past 10 years, Jason has been a volunteer camp director working with kids to build their character, and act as a positive role-model.
