A 2003 Brockport graduate, Jaskulski served as an assistant coach for eight years, and has overseen the Golden Eagles' throwers during a recent stretch of national success.

During his coaching tenure, Jaskulski has coached 35 NCAA participants, 21 All-Americans, one National Champion with Zach Ferrara winning the pole vault title at the 2012-13 Indoor championships, 51 State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) champions, 17 state champions and three Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) champions.

In 2009, Jaskulski was promoted to interim head coach for the Outdoor Track & Field squads and was selected as the SUNYAC Coach of the Year for women's track and field as the Golden Eagles captured their first SUNYAC title for the women.

Jaskulski serves as the college’s strength and conditioning coach. He will apply his extensive strength and conditioning knowledge and 15 plus years of training under the bar to the development of weight training regimens for the Brockport student-athletes.
