Jason Hope has earned a reputation for living up to his name by giving a world consigned to bear the effects of aging the hope of a longer, healthier, better quality of life through his support of anti-aging research. As an entrepreneur, investor, and highly-regarded futurist, Hope’s philanthropy extends to many interests, but his passion has become aiding the work of the SENS Foundation, the world’s foremost research laboratory dedicated to curing age-related disease.
Hope, an Arizona native, received a finance degree from Arizona State University and an MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business before turning his ambitions to the future. Now, as a business consultant, he helps young entrepreneurs with tomorrow’s game-changing ideas with grants and guidance that can turn those ideas into reality.

And nowhere is Jason Hope’s drive to help humanity grow more evident than in his $500,000 gift to the California-based SENS Foundation. His generous donation allowed the foundation to build and fully equip a new laboratory. SENS Foundation CSO, Aubrey de Grey, plans to put the funds to good use in researching a cure for arteriosclerosis, a condition that causes the high blood pressure responsible for exacerbating many age-related diseases.

Jason Hope believes his gift is only one of many that will be needed for the SENS Foundation to meet its goals and praises their work saying, “They are focused on finding cures for disease that break down the body and thus cause us to age faster than we should. Disease like Alzheimer’s and heart and lung disease affect all functions of the body. Traditional medicine looks at treating these diseases after they happen. We want to focus on stopping these diseases from ever happening.” Arizona Entrepreneur Jason Hope Predicts the End of Aging
