The Los Angeles–San Diego–San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency board unanimously appointed Jason Jewell as the interim managing director of the LOSSAN Agency.
Jewell has been with LOSSAN for seven years serving as the agency’s CFO. He has a longstanding career in transportation, acting in accounting and finance management roles at the Orange County Transportation Authority for more than 10 years before joining the LOSSAN Agency.
Jewell will take over management and operations of the agency and continue his current responsibilities as CFO. He replaces Donna DeMartino, who served as managing director since January 2020.
The LOSSAN rail corridor spans 351 miles and covers a six-county coastal region in Southern California, from San Diego to San Luis Obispo. It is the second busiest intercity passenger rail corridor in the U.S., hosting intercity, commuter, long-distance, and freight rail services.
