J.W. Oliver was born in France the son of a proud, hard-working Air Force Master Sergeant from North Carolina, and a Texan momma who raised four kids and taught them to love Jesus. Spent most of his life in Texas, where he and his wife married in 1994 and raised two children.
As an entrepreneur since age 12 selling “PopRocks” from his middle school locker, he has started up more than 20+ companies from dental imaging, an insourcing center in Africa, an international property management group, a collegiate summer baseball team, a gym and even a skateboard park. (The last three being colossal failures.) He is an avid traveler who enjoys seeing the world. Sees an opportunity in every obstacle. Completed two ½ Iron-Men races, nine Half Marathons, hiked 6 days from Cusco to Machu Picchu all after the age of 48. Is a pilot, ordained minister, author, and hosts a podcast.
He will be climbing to Everest Base Camp in 2021 after a “flu delay” in 2020. He loves to see others laugh and smile, and desires most of all to lift up and encourage others and show them Jesus. He is currently the managing partner for ZimWorX.com and Global Imaging.
