Jason L. Welsh ’03 of Brownsburg, Ind., is president and owner of Indianapolis Sport and Spine, specializing in the treatment and prevention of athletic injuries at all levels. Welsh has treated athletes in Little League sports, high school “blue chips,” and NCAA Division I, II and III, as well as professional athletes. As team physician for Don Shumacher Racing and Wayne Taylor Racing in Brownsburg, he treats drivers and crew members for the racing teams, including offering fitness and nutrition guidance.

Welsh earned a master’s degree in anatomy from St. Louis University in 2005. He continued his education at Logan University in Chesterfield, Mo., where he earned both a master’s degree in exercise science and rehabilitation and a doctor of chiropractic degree in 2009. 

As a generous supporter of MU and member of the 2001 CCIW championship soccer team, Welsh challenged fellow soccer alumni to give toward improvement of Millikin’s soccer facilities. He is also generous with his experience, quickly agreeing to advise a May 2012 MU graduate planning to enroll in chiropractic school. 

A biology major at MU, Welsh was a member of Delta Sigma Phi, Greek Week Committee, Intra-fraternity Council, Student Congress, Model Illinois Government, Student Ambassador Corps, Environmental Affairs Committee, Dining Services Advisory Council, Homecoming Committee and Fall Family Weekend Committee. He also was a member of the soccer team during his sophomore and junior years. A National Merit Scholar and Leighty Scholar, he also received the Richard Locke Phi Kappa Phi award, a SURF grant and the John and Ula Leighty research award.

Welsh is married to fellow MU graduate, Jaime Haege Welsh ’03, a nurse at Riley Hospital for Children. They have four children: Xander, 7; Noah, 5; Ella, 4; and Liam, 2.
