Meet the team
Our team of experienced, dedicated professionals guide The Page Family Foundation toward achieving its goals for a better future.
Grant Page, Founder, Director, and President of The Page Family Foundation, is an innovative business entrepreneur with an extensive background in STEM who has made it his life’s mission and fully dedicated himself to solving life-changing, global issues by making an everlasting positive difference in the world. Of the many current pressing global issues, Grant has ambitiously taken on the task of solving the world’s water crisis in the interest of millions of people who struggle without access to clean, safe drinking water.
Grant started his revolutionary work as a high school student after founding his first company at the age of sixteen. Following high school, he became a Midshipman at the United States Naval Academy where he had the privilege of working at the Naval Research Laboratories and Naval Surface Warfare Center to further develop his innovative ideas. He earned a Mechanical Engineering Bachelor's Degree with an emphasis on Chemistry. He continued his work as a Naval Officer while completing a tour in the Mediterranean and Middle East and in parallel becoming the Founder and President of Magna Imperio Systems Corp., a water purification and desalination company manufacturing self-sustainable water systems. Once he returned to the States, he implemented his findings through systems fueled by more efficient, worldwide, groundbreaking, power and desalination technology that can treat any water anywhere, anytime in a socially acceptable and economically feasible manner. His technology is impacting water quality and increasing availability in many countries thus far; however, his goal is to extend his reach and vision in order to help men, women, and children in need of safe, clean water in over 180 countries within our children’s lifetime. He is reinventing the treatment of water with environmentally responsible operations, a dedicated workforce, and extraordinarily high ethical standards to truly be the driving force in the world necessary to achieve the change he wants to see.
Through his many social and professional connections, Grant has supported and encouraged the growth of businesses worldwide by connecting others in an effort to enhance and secure international opportunities that foster favorable market and industry developments for ongoing success. As a strong advocate for volunteer work, he believes that donating your time and efforts into a cause greater than yourself is immeasurably critical for both communal and personal advancement. Before relocating to commit to his education in the United States Naval Academy, Grant instructed martial arts classes at Haley’s Martial Art's Studio as a second-degree black belt. His intent was to inspire character maturation and self-discipline in each of his students through his teachings. During that same timeframe, he worked with his father, a Rotarian, providing services in the local community through the Rotary Club of Chico, California by assisting in many projects and fund-raising events that promoted fun, fellowship, and family enjoyment to those less fortunate while encouraging high-ethical standards and building good will and peace. Grant is also highly active in helping veterans and other water non-profit foundations.

Jesse Waltz, P.E.
Jesse Waltz, P.E., is a national award-winning entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist. As the founder of multiple successful companies ranging from construction to SAAS, Waltz has been recognized by Inc. Magazine, the Virginia Chamber of Commerce and Inside Business for running one of the fastest growing private companies. Jesse has come to be known for his relentless pursuit of improvement, a passion to empower fellow entrepreneurs, and an unflagging resolve to serve his community. In his twenty-three years as CEO of JES, Waltz grew a one-man operation run from his garage into the largest residential foundation services company in the United States. With his engineering background and a vision to change an industry, Jesse built a company that customers could trust to do the job right and who would be there to stand behind life-time guarantees so often offered by fly-by-night contractors, then dominating the industry.
Now employing over 500 people and servicing homeowners across seven states along the Eastern Seaboard and Mid-West, the renamed Groundworks Companies continues its rapid expansion. Looked at by many as the model for the future, the company, with its four subsidiaries, has served over 70,000 homeowners and is on track to soon deliver over nine figures in revenue.
Waltz, recognized early the power of analytics and the necessity for a comprehensive software application to manage a modern day growing business. Frustrated by a lack of quality solutions in the marketplace, Jesse began developing his own software. Born first out of his own need, in 2008 Jesse launched KBH Business Management Systems providing his battle tested BizWiz and Contractor on the Go management and workflow software solutions to likeminded entrepreneurs. Now serving customers across the U.S. and Canada, KBH has become a must-have solution for many companies operating in the home services vertical. Jesse has since diversified into multiple other ventures, built a commercial and residential real estate portfolio and become a sought after angel investor, advisor and mentor to other entrepreneurs across the nation.
Grounded by his humble beginnings and generous nature, Jesse and his wife Stella dedicate the free time they have to serving others and giving back to the community. A supporter of many charities and civic organizations, Waltz’s philanthropic and volunteer efforts include the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Kiwanis, American Cancer Society, multiple youth sports leagues, Lions Club and many others.
