Dr. Chase lives in State College with his wife  Jessica, and two children, Peyton and Logan. In his free time, he loves watching UNC Tar Heels basketball, Penn State football, all things exercise, and traveling. He is eager for he and his family to become involved in the local community for many years to come!
