Jason A. Lanegan completed an associate's degree at Brigham Young University-Idaho in 1996 and then received a Master of Fine Arts degree in studio art from Brigham Young Univeristy in 2004.

In 2011, Jason was a director of the Capitol Reef Project funded by the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts. Lanegan also collaborated with Richard Hull, an Illustration professor, and James Swensen, an Art History professor, on the project. The project included students from all disciplines of Visual Arts and concluded with the exhibit, Shared and Solitary Spaces: Capitol Reef 2011, which was shown at BYU and also at Snow College. The next year, Lanegan joined eight other Utah artists at an exhibit entitled Renewal: Finding Life through Art, which was displayed at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center. The exhibition featured art made from discarded items.

In 2013, Lanegan received a grant from the Laycock Center to bring ten Music, Visual Arts, and Creative Writing students on a trip to Zion and Toroweap Overlook in Utah's Colorado Plateau. The purpose of the trip was to enliven their imaginations and immerse them in nature in order to enhance their artistic abilities.

Lanegan currently works as the gallery director at the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC) on the BYU Campus. In 2014, he received a Staff and Administrative Employee Recognition Award (SAERA).
