SAN JACINTO, CA – Jason Cozart has been appointed General Manager at Soboba Casino Resort (SCR). A Soboba tribal member, Cozart began working for the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians in 1995 and spent most of the past 28 years working in some capacity for the Soboba Casino.
“I have spent time in bingo, security and slots, but the bulk of my career was spent in table games,” said Cozart. “I have held front line, supervisory, managerial and director level positions along the way.”
Cozart assumed the position of Assistant General Manager in 2017 and was heavily involved in the design and construction of the new property, as well as the opening of the resort in February of 2019.
“The experience and knowledge I have gained over the past couple of decades has certainly helped prepare me to take on this role, but I am constantly striving to learn and develop in all areas of the operation,” said Cozart. “I [want] to be part of building a legacy for future generations of not only our tribe, but for the neighboring communities as well. I also just enjoy working in the gaming industry. This industry is full of excitement and is in many ways on the cutting edge of technology, hospitality and entertainment.”
In early 2024, a new pickleball facility will be opening to the public and Cozart said the team is looking forward to hosting leagues, tournaments and charity events very soon at its Soboba Springs Golf Course location. “Being part of building a future for my tribe is absolutely my favorite part of working here,” said Cozart. “Knowing that what I am doing will benefit future generations is extremely rewarding and provides a sense of purpose that I’m not sure I would find elsewhere. I am excited to see what lies ahead for the Soboba Casino Resort, as well as the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians.”
