It wasn’t that long ago that Jason Helland was walking the hallways of Seneca High School. That was back in 1994. Just one year shy of his 25-year reunion he has taken on the task of challenging Jesse White for Illinois Secretary of State. White has been in office since 1999. Helland is in his second term as Grundy County State’s Attorney.
Helland’s education background included a stop at Joliet Junior College before receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of St. Francis in Joliet. He then received his law degree from the John Marshall Law School.
