Injuries
In October 2014 he tore the anterior cruciate ligament [ACL] in his right knee in a training accident. He had surgery on the injury the same month, resulting in around six months off training. By July 2015, just prior to competing at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, ON, Canada, he said he had recovered around 80% of his full strength. He suffered another tear prior to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro but recovered in time to compete at the Games. (csiontario.ca, 11 Jul 2019; Twitter profile, 05 May 2015; yorkregion.com, 07 Jul 2015; youtube.com, 11 Dec 2014)

In 2010 he injured his right leg while doing tricks for a demo reel as a part of his stunt man activities. The injury included a broken fibula, dislodged ankle joint and torn ligaments. He underwent surgery to insert plates and screws in his leg. After six months of recovery he returned to the sport in January 2011. (jasonburnett.ca.com, 23 May 2012)
Start sporting career
He took up artistic gymnastics at age eight before focusing more on trampoline gymnastics by age 10 at Airborne Trampoline Club in Cambridge, ON, Canada. (csiontario.ca, 11 Jul 2019; springfreetrampoline.com, 2016)
Reason for taking up the sport
His parents enrolled him in gymnastics as a way to channel his excess energy, and at the end of every class he was allowed to jump on the trampoline, which quickly became his favourite activity. He also says the sport helped him build confidence, as he was shy as a child. (jasonburnett.ca, 27 Mar 2012; jasonburnett.ca, 02 Jul 2014; olympic.ca, 20 Oct 2014)

Winning a silver medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. (csiontario.ca, 11 Jul 2019)

Additional information
General
RETIREMENT
In January 2021 he announced his retirement from competitive trampolining. "As a kid, all I ever wanted to do was jump high and do flips, and trampoline has allowed me to pursue this simple passion for the past 24 years, My sport has taken me around the world and I have had the opportunities to meet many wonderful people along the way. Without them, I would not have developed the skill or the confidence to push the boundaries of our sport and achieve my goals." (gymnastics.sport. 28 Jan 2021)
