About Us

Rick Wagner & Jason "Bamba" Anderson

Jason "Bamba" Anderson -

Jason was born in Bemidji Minnesota.  At a very young age his family relocated to Saint Paul eventually settling in New Brighton.

While growing up he always had a huge sense of Hometown pride probably brought on by his Mother and Father's love for their hometowns in Texas and South Dakota. 

Jason grew up with this Mom and Dad taking him and his brother everywhere and showing everything about the great state of Minnesota. 

Weekends were spent at Scout camps, ball games, comic book shows, professional sports events, fair's, roadside attractions, fishing or enjoying the beauty of just looking at a Minnesota TV set- the campfire.

After 20 years the banking industry,  he reevaluated what he doing and decided to get into a new industry and joined forces with Rick.....the rest is yet to be written.

Jason's hobbies are anything Minnesota (Worlds largest ball of twine in Darwin Minnesota is one of his favorites) movies, sports(SKOL!), faith and most importantly family.

Jason lives in the Northern Suburbs of the Twin Cities with his wife. They have 2 adult girls  in college. They grew up in the Centennial School district graduating from Centennial High School, The same school their Mother graduated from.

 Rick Wagner - 

Rick was raised in Lino Lakes, MN .  He has witnessed a lot of changes in his hometown, as farm fields were replaced with housing developments and businesses. Growing up, Rick loved playing sports and enjoying the great outdoors.  After high school he established his roots in Lino Lakes with his family.

When he is not chasing his family around with their sports, the Wagner family love spending their time in the Minnesota outdoors. Staying at the Cabin, Camping, and boating. Nothing makes him happier then just being with his family making memories.  In the fall, however, you will find him hunting in the woods, enjoying peace and quiet. 
 Enjoying Minnesota summers on the lake and around the camp fire with family.  That is where the idea for WakeLife came about and the rest is history.
Rick has spent the last 15 years in the apparel and promotions business. He is very excited for this new opportunity and sharing his ideas with the new Wake Life/Minn Life family.
