Cory Grassell - Digital Marketing Manager

Cory Grassell - Digital Marketing Manager

Cory has a unique role at Home Instead: telling stories. Your story.

By connecting with CAREGivers and clients alike, he is building a vast library of collective stories that we can share with our communities and even the world (coincidentally, Cory worked in a library while in college).

Cory's storytelling experience stems from 15+ years in marketing, advertising and his "bread and butter" communications. In fact, prior to receiving a master's degree in history, Cory earned a bachelor's degree in English, having enjoyed studying the written language as well as classic literature, from prose to poetry.

When Cory isn't telling stories for a living, he's telling them around the campfire at home. That's because he enjoys spending time in the backyard (in the warmer months, of course) with his wife, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and the vast company of mosquitoes. In addition to storyteller, he also goes by avid sports fan, reader, HGTV junkie, food lover, #1 uncle and exerciser.

Jason Hiles - Vice President, Sales & Marketing

Jason is an ordained minister, believing wholeheartedly in the role of faith in life. He is also a natural-born salesperson, having success in the field as early as college.

When We Care Senior Care (dba Home Instead Senior Care) came calling in 2015, it was the ideal opportunity for Jason. As General Manager of our Madison location, Jason had a unique opportunity to apply his passion for sales at a faith-based organization. Over the years that followed, Jason helped put the Madison location on a course toward growth and helped the branch sustain continued success.

Jason's accomplishments within the Madison branch paved the way for his new role in 2018. Now Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Jason has responsibility for the top and bottom line revenues of each of the five We Care Senior Care offices, but he sees it as an opportunity to serve others.

As a servant leader, Jason seeks to apply selflessness and to put love into action with his teammates and neighbors. Putting others' needs first is a mindset that stems from his personal motto borrowed from Micah 6:8, "... What does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"

Jason and his wife Liz — high-school sweethearts! — have three children together and are actively involved in their local church.
