Jared Story was born and raised in Southeastern Michigan. Through junior high school and high school, Jared worked in the family construction business, where he became a proficient heavy equipment operator and learned all aspects of the building industry. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 1995, Jared took over the family business where he grew the businesses from $2,000,000 annual revenue to over $5,000,000. In 1997 he fell in love with and married Kate. In 1999 they had a son, Liam and in 2001 they had a daughter Lily. Following the 2008 recession, the family businesses in the Detroit area were closed and the family relocated to Charlotte, NC for 2 years. Then in 2010, Jared, Kate and the kids relocated to Branson, Missouri. Since then, Jared has been involved in building and operating numerous family entertainment centers, and has also branched out into the blended liquor industry. They continue to live in the Branson area, where Jared serves on the Board of Directors at the Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce, Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
