During that time, Jamin also served on his father’s portfolio strategy team as an analyst and then an executive for many of the family’s past and present mergers and acquisitions.
Mr. Pastore is a graduate of Duke University with focus in Economics, Markets & Management, and Sociology. He was a four-year scholarship student/athlete on the football team. He was inducted in the Beaver Local High School Hall of Fame in 2006. He holds many BLHS football records, in addition to receiving 1st team All-Ohio honors as a Quarterback in 2000.
