Giving Until it Hurts: Pain, Faith, and Purpose
In Episode 2, hosts Phil Buchanan and Grace Nicolette welcome Jason Hackmann, an entrepreneur and major donor whose name you won’t find in headlines, but who has quietly been investing deeply in efforts to end childhood slavery in Ghana. Jason discusses with Phil and Grace the role that personal experience and faith played in motivating him to identify and give meaningfully to a particular cause.
Jason Hackmann founded BryanMark Financial Group in 2004 to exclusively focus on the niche area of providing customized life insurance solutions to affluent clients. Jason is a member of several industry associations and has given frequent seminars on the complexities of designing, evaluating, and implementing life insurance solutions within the affluent market. His efforts have driven BryanMark Financial Group to become one of the top firms within M Financial Group.
Jason is active in several charities within Africa. He and his wife Jennifer make frequent trips to numerous African countries to further the humanitarian and educational causes of the charities they serve.
Jason and Jennifer have three children; Evan, Alexis and Hadley.
