Jason Ross has always been the person his friends would turn to for the latest on cool things. And thanks to his Mom, Ross was always a discount shopper. His business, JackThreads.com, "is about everything I'm about, which is cool, cutting edge brands, and products at 40 to 80% off retail," says Ross.
