It's been a long journey for Jason Davis at KSTP, with nearly 40 years of illuminating stories captured "On The Road". 

Jason shares moments with his family as he enters his final week, at KSTP, before retirement. Jason has traveled the world to bring stories back to the homes of his viewers and now he, and his wife, Amanda, are retiring from their jobs on the same day later this month.

Jason allowed us to spend some time with his wife, children and grandchildren to give us a glimpse of the man they know "away from the road."

You might be surprised to see what some of his favorite hobbies are away from work and what memories his children and wife share about having a dad and husband who's been a fixture in the Twin Cities television market for over four decades. 

These are stories Jason has shied away from sharing with viewers until now.

You might expect when you take a look at this story that Jason, in retirement, will take the road less traveled as he starts his new life after "On The Road" runs its course.
