Jed Barker

Jed Barker believes that the three most important things in life are faith, family, and friendships. Jed’s drive and desire to serve God and others at a high level has given him great opportunities both in business and the community to make a high impact in the world.

At the age of 27, he launched his first successful startup company in the tech industry. Over the next 13 years Jed focused on business growth and development and led the organization to high levels of success, and eventually, a successful sale of the company.

Jed’s favorite poem titled “Finishers Wanted” shares the message of resilience and drive that Jed says is one of the most important aspects of his success. The poem from an unknown author reads, “Stick to your task ’til it sticks to you; Beginners are many, but enders are few. Honor, power, place and praise. Will come, in time, to the one who stays. Stick to your task ’til it sticks to you; Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it, too. For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile, will come life’s victories, after awhile”.

Jed has been married to his beautiful wife for 20 years, and is the father of 6 children.
