About the Founder

Jerrod Sessler is the founder and CEO of HomeTask, Inc., a multi-brand, service-focused franchisor. Born in the late sixties, Sessler has always had a passion for innovation and leadership. At four years old, Sessler told his mom that he wanted to drive a racecar and in 1998 that dream came true when he graduated to the NASCAR levels of racing. After serving as a Navy Petty Officer and then as an engineer at Intel Corporation Sessler’s life came to an abrupt fork in the road when he was diagnosed with stage four metastasized melanoma in his late twenties. Sessler was given a 5% chance of living and opted to pursue alternative treatment by moving to a plant-based diet. Now, nearly twenty years after this grim diagnosis, Sessler is cancer-free and thriving.

In 2004, Sessler founded HomeTask, Inc, a service company, using the franchise business platform which allowed him to grow great brands such as Freggies, Hot Feet Fitness, Lawn Army, Pet Butler, Yellow Van Handyman and others. The company has grown to over two hundred locations nationwide. Sessler was nominated as the Small Business Association (SBA) Person of the Year in 2007 and was named SBA Veteran Champion of the Year in 2010 for his work in offering significant discounts to veterans so that they can start their own business.

In 2009 Sessler became a published author with his book, “Five Percent Chance,” which shares his story of surviving cancer and taking responsibility for his health. In 2013 he authored “The Five Minute Workout” and in 2014 he released “Food Chains.” Sessler enjoys spending time with his family of five (not counting several 4-legged family members) and serving in charities in his hometown of Burien, Washington.
