Jabez LeBret

Education-High School, Additional Active

Jabez is a Co-Founder and Chief of Schools for Sisu Academy, a tuition-free boarding high school for underserved girls in San Diego.

Jabez has been homeless, is a high school dropout, and was on a path to nowhere. After getting his GED, Jabez studied finance and marketing at Gonzaga University. He went on to become a financial analyst managing a multi-million P&L at Nordstrom. Jabez is now an international public speaker (1,100+ presentations), author, and Forbes Contributor. He recently sold his award winning marketing agency to free up time to pursue his passion in education.

Jabez is originally from a tiny fishing village in Alaska (where the bank is inside of a bar!) and he was raised by his grandmother who taught him that “no matter what happens to him in life, it is ultimately up to him to decide who he becomes.”

Trevor Blair, David Oates and Dan Assisi were his sponsors.
