Jason Hawes, born on 27 December 1971 in New York, is an American plumber, paranormal investigator, and a TV personality. At the age of 20, Jason had his first paranormal experience, when his then-girlfriend, a Reiki practitioner, manipulated his life force energy. After having a few more experiences of a similar nature, Jason decided that he wanted to become a paranormal investigator.
Jason Hawes founded the Rhode Island Paranormal Society (RIPS) in 1990 as a support group for people who underwent paranormal experiences. However, after meeting Grant Wilson, he re-named it to The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS). Jason went on to host one of the most popular paranormal tv series ‘Ghost Hunters.’ Read on to find out what the life and net worth of a ghost hunter is like.

Thankfully though, she was able to recover and is now happily living her life with her husband and kids without any complications. The couple even stated that this scary incident helped them get closer and made their relationship even stronger.
Although Kristen and Jason have to deal with being away from each other for extended periods due to Jason’s job requirements, they have been able to make their relationship work. Proud of all that her husband has achieved, Kristen is happy to take care of their children while Jason follows his passion and hunts the paranormal.
