In honor of Father’s Day, I brought my dad, Jamie Azuma, on the show to take a stroll down memory lane and examine some of the events of my childhood through his eyes. As a devout husband, father, and businessman, my dad has been the sterling example, for me, of how a man provides for his family (beyond financial), loves and honors his wife, and embodies his values in every word and action.

Topics Covered:

  • The innocence of the boy that never leaves the man…hopefully
  • How values change between generations: culture and human evolution
  • The importance of respect as a value
  • The story of my grandfather and his legacy
  • The power of forgiveness
  • My grandfather’s passing
  • Keeping the family connected
  • Cancer
  • Rising to the occasion
  • Being a step-father
  • Raising boys
  • Having a high character without looking fo the spotlight
