    At age 23, Jason joined Chicago in mid-1985 when Peter Cetera left to pursue a solo career. His ability to closely duplicate Cetera’s vocal parts, and play bass guitar, allowed the band to continue its touring/recording efforts without a hitch; he debuted on lead vocals on their 1986 hit single “Will You Still Love Me?” Besides performing the band’s classic material, Scheff has composed several original songs for the band, including their 1989 Top 10 single “What Kind Of Man Would I Be?.” He is the oldest son of well-known session bassist Jerry Scheff, who toured for several years with Elvis Presley.
