Jason Hester is a man on mission. He likes to establish big goals and approach life with a sense of possibility. He pursues goals with tenacity while thinking through decisions critically and leading others with a sense of purpose and urgency. Jason has been defined has having a bias towards action and drives himself and others to establish and constantly assess where they are, understand where they want to be, and develop plans to make that bright future a reality.
Jason started out in the financial services industry in 1998 by entering into a partnership with his father. In working alongside his dad with family-owned businesses he quickly became intrigued by the leadership, strategy, structure, and plans required to make business work effectively. In 2001, he and his dad formed Navitas Wealth Advisors and Jason served this new enterprise as their Vice-President of Operations.
In 2007, Jason’s career took an unexpected turn. In what he refers to as his “Jerry Maguire” moment, he left the world of business to become an executive pastor for a church with a membership of over 12,000. Jason has said that this season of life taught him the invaluable lessons of how to lead with mission and values as opposed to position and compensation. In his work with the church he and the leadership team he was a part of grew to become one of the top eighty largest and fastest growing churches in the United States.
In 2010, Jason once again made a shift as he left his church to start his own consulting company and launch a non-profit called Restoration Hope to help bring relief to the AIDS pandemic in South Africa.
In 2014, Jason felt it was time to return to his roots and once again entered a partnership with his father. Jason now puts into action the skills of leadership, the heart of passion, and the gift of planning he has developed over his career by serving as President for Navitas. He has a passion for helping the future generations of families ascend to their places of leadership and achieve their own legacies of significance.
