An Arizona native, Jared makes giving back to the community a priority. He volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America from 2000-2019 and was honored with admission to the Scoutmaster Hall of Fame. He served as director of programming for the Financial Planning Association of Greater Phoenix from 2006 to 2008, and has been quoted in Business week, Barron’s, The Wall Street Journal and Forbes. He and his wife, Karlie, live just a few miles away from Jared’s home neighborhood. They have two children, Sam and Ella. “Needless to say, we are careful saying our kids’ names in restaurants,” Jared says.
