Meet CALSPro Secretary-Treasurer & Chairman of the Board, Ken Hastings
Posted March 20, 2018 in Membership
Kenneth “Ken” Hastings was born on Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California. His father was stationed on the installation along with his best friend K. Paul Wysong — the K stands for Kenneth. His father and Paul shared a special bond so his father was insightful enough to name him after this amazing man.
He wasn’t raised anywhere per se… He lived in California his entire childhood but never in one spot for too long — so much so that he went to 13 schools in 13 years (K-12).
Ken is a Disabled U.S. Army Veteran who served between 1994 and 1997. He was injured in an accident in the motor pool which damaged his spine. He was deployed to the former Yugoslavia on a peace keeping mission with the United Nations in a region now known as Bosnia Herzegovina. He was honorably discharged after a 3-year enlistment in 1997.
Ken is married to Wendi Hastings and they are celebrating their 15th anniversary this April by taking a cruise to Mexico, Belize and the Island of Roatan off the coast of Honduras.
They have three children — Alyson 18, Cameron 18, and Emilie 14 (2 freshmen in college and a freshman in high school). They also have 2 shih tzu puppies named Maverick and Roxy.
In his spare time, Ken likes to go to the the wineries around Temecula or take his Harley up to Julian for a nice ride.
Thanks to the support of Paul Wysong, Hastings Professional Process Servers was established in late 2010. Ken joined CALSPro in early 2011 and has been learning about legal support services ever since.
“I enjoy getting people served — plain and simple but that is our job. We are hired by people to provide “legal notice” and that has always been what I strive to do.”
Ken enjoys participating on the CALSPro Board of Directors. In his earlier years, his focus was making sure that the “little guy” had a voice of reason and thought that he was a good candidate to speak for them. Over the past several years, he has maintained that voice but has grown some. Now he can be found speaking up for CASLPro members as a whole — what is best for everyone.
When asked what other profession he would have chosen if he didn’t have this one, here’s his answer:
“That’s too hard to answer because I’m a big kid at heart. A fighter pilot, Navy SEAL, Army Green Beret, race car driver, or professional baseball player would have all made the list.”
