Unlike many of the other figures who worked at Orange County Choppers and featured in “American Chopper,” Jason Pohl was not a builder but rather a designer. He eventually rose to the rank of lead designer at the custom bike shop, taking charge of important projects at the facility. Yet, Jason didn’t find the work easy, noting the challenge of taking a 2D concept drawing and modeling it in 3D so that fabricators can start the build process.
Pohl continued to appear in various shows based on the reality series after it ended, including “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” and “Orange County Choppers” in 2013. During an episode of “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior,” Pohl took exception to some criticism from Paul Sr. The situation quickly escalated to the point that the designer wrecked a motorcycle by throwing it off a lift in a fit of anger.
Currently, Pohl works as a brand ambassador for Solidworks, sharing his experience with the company and experimenting with their various tools to showcase what is possible when using them. He also has his own company known as Jason Pohl Designs, working on projects such as creating a CNC machine, an important tool used in the manufacturing process. Outside of work, Jason juggles spending time with his wife and children.
