NY Times Bestselling Author, 'Living with a Seal,' Serial Entrepreneur, Marquis Jet, Zico Coconut Water, Co-Owner, Atlanta Hawks
Jesse Itzler has put together one of the most Impressive LIFE RESUMES I’ve ever seen. With no aviation experience he and his partner started Marquis Jet, the largest private jet card company in the world and sold it to Warren Buffet’s NetJets after doing over $5 BILLION in sales. Then, with no beverage experience he and his partners started ZICO Coconut Water and sold it to Coca Cola. And just last year his adventure company 29-0-29 was bought by the fitness giant iFIt.
He was a rapper signed to Delicious Vinyl Records, a kiddie pool attendant, managed Run DMC, lived in a monastery with monks, the author of the NY Times Best Selling Book, “Living With The Seal.” And he is an endurance athlete who has run multiple 100 mile races.
On top of that, he’s married to Sara Blakely the founder of the shapewear empire SPANX which was just recently acquired for 1.2 billion dollars.
Currently, Jesse lives in Atlanta where he is part owner of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.

”Thank you for putting on such a great performance – your contagious energy and spirit was exactly what my team needed to regain motivation after a tough year. Your message on differentiation and “what was your brownie” was incredibly poignant for our people as they continue to look for ways to stand apart from their competitors. The point you drove home regarding the importance of keeping after success despite all odds, was exactly what my team needed to hear. I’m certain this will reverberate in their memory as they face a difficult year filled with many challenges. I cannot thank you enough for igniting a much-needed spark in my team and myself.Caliber Home Loans
