Meet Our Worshipful Master
Jayson J. Glenn
I was born at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center located in Towson, Maryland.I grew up in many different parts of Maryland ranging from East Baltimore City to Southern Harford County. I attended one of the best institutions for high school known as Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and graduated from Morgan State University studying a discipline in Engineering. Today,
I am an Information Systems professional.
I first gained interest into Freemasonry after watching a documentary and
hearing various artifacts and opinions about this school of Wisdom. At the time, I
made the decision to pursue my membership after joining the oldest collegiate
Black Greek Letter Organization and graduating from college. After graduating
college, I knew several Brothers already in the order, who happened to also be
friends of mine. I sought membership through them with an inquiring mind,
wanting to know more about this organization. I asked of
their avouchment and my journey began.
I was initiated on March 12, 2015 into St. John’s Lodge #5 of the Most Worshipful
Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Maryland. Thereafter, I was passed to the degree of
FellowCraft on May 14, 2015 and raised sublimely on August 2, 2015. Thus far I
have accomplished a good amount of things. In November 2015, I was elected
Secretary of my lodge and alongside my lodge Treasurer, together we won the
3rd Masonic District “District Quills Award” for exceptional administrative work. In
October 2016, I was awarded “Mason of the Year” through St. John’s Lodge #5.
In August 2017, I graduated from the Lodges of Instruction while being awarded
“Warden of the Year” and valedictorian of my class. My journey has been an
extremely rigorous yet glorious one giving the number of hours spent studying
the knowledge of the institution, attending events and visiting other lodges, and
creating lifetime bonds with brothers from all backgrounds.
The ambition to serve my peers and community led me to my aspirations of
being Master of this Lodge. I desire to improve the conditions of my community,
motivate my peers to grow in the different facets of life, and be an advocate for
giving back to others in numerous ways. My training and discussions, with
brothers on all levels, has equipped me with the knowledge, wisdom, personality,
and confidence to lead this Lodge as Worshipful Master.
