Founder Bios

Henry Ostaszewski
Henry began wearing his soul at a young age and hasn’t taken a day off since. Prior to founding the Wear Your Soul Foundation in 2009, he was an accomplished account manager at an interior design and architecture firm, a Pittsburgh Steeler, a Florida State Seminole, and a big brother, but feels that he’s finally found his purpose in life. Henry’s passion for adventure extends into everything he does, whether shredding mountains on a snowboard or taking his kids, Brooke and Ben, on a kayaking excursion- and his passion is the fuel for the Foundation. Right now, Henry is on his own path to improve his lifestyle, and is a role model for kids who want to embrace a healthy outdoor lifestyle and seize the spirit of adventure.

Joe Ostaszewski
Wearing your soul runs in the family. Over the past 20 years, Joe has traveled the country in search of adventure, becoming a manager, an assistant coach at Florida State, an EMT, a firefighter, a law enforcement officer, a Miami Dolphin, a Seminole, and a brother. Henry’s junior by a mere 7 minutes, their friendly rivalry has spanned the years they spent together and apart, and has now culminated in the Wear Your Soul Foundation. Quitting was never an option in the Ostaszewski household, and Joe is dedicated to making sure that same spirit is infused into everything that the Foundation does. Joe is working every day to improve his own health and lifestyle, and wants to spread his infectious commitment and courage to kids across the nation; helping them overcome limits and discover the best version of themselves, all while supporting (and besting) his brother.
