Commissioned as a heavy-hull repair ship (ARH 1), the JASON was the fourth and final ship in the VULCAN - class. The JASON was redesignated as repair ship (AR 8) on September 9, 1957. The origin of the name JASON is in Greek mythology. Jason was the son of Aeson, King of Iolcus in Thessaly, who commanded the ship ARGO on the famous voyage in quest of the Golden Fleece.

USS JASON was both decommissioned and stricken from the Navy list on June 24, 1995. At that point of time, the JASON was the Navy's oldest ship in active commission. JASON was subsequently berthed at the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet, Benecia, Calif. The ship was sold for scrap in November 2006. The JASON was later towed to Marine Metal, Inc., at Brownsville, Tx., arriving there on March 1, 2007. Scrapping started shortly thereafter.
