Lt. Col. Lisa Jaster

"It's important to try to do hard things, but it's also important to look at the big picture and see how you can add to society and maybe make the world a little bit better."

Lt. Col. Lisa Jaster is one of first three female Ranger School graduates. As a reservist, she is currently the BDE XO for 420th Engineer Brigade out of Bryan, TX. When she’s not in uniform, Jaster is the Director of Civil Engineering for M&S Engineering in New Braunfels, TX. She is also a wife and mother of two. Jaster travels to speak to corporate audiences on team building and leadership. Air Force ROTC cadets must memorize a quote from Jaster as part of their training, “There’s no quitting, I can’t have quit in me. There was never an option to stop and quit.” Jaster hopes to inspire others to push themselves past whatever obstacles are in front of them.
