Jit Jayakumar HeadshotJit Jayakumar
Estate Manager
Kona, HI

Jit discovered the Hospitality Industry while interning at a small convention hotel in his hometown in California. This led him to pursue a degree in Hotel Management at the University of Las Vegas. After obtaining his degree, he was selected to enter the elite Management Training Program at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Working at several properties in different managerial positions, Jit was able to continue to learn and grow his knowledge in the industry. Even though he enjoyed his experience working for the Four Seasons company, he could not resist the call of the Hawaiian Islands. He accepted a position with The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows, a luxury resort on the Big Island of Hawaii, where he held managerial positions in different departments.

Jit would say he wasn’t even aware of a career path in Estate Management until six years ago, when he was contacted by a former colleague about an open position managing an estate. This call led him into an industry where he found his true passion and he has stayed with this family ever since that call. He is also the current President of the Hawaii Chapter, and a five-year member and supporter of DEMA. In his free time, Jit enjoys going to the beach, golfing, and traveling.
