If you are in the market to purchase a new car, there is a elite salesman at Capital Ford in Raleigh that is waiting to meet your needs. Jason Griffith is a well rounded individual who has earned the respect and trust of his fellow sales team and community through hard work, honesty and consistency. His career began in 1992 at RPM Nissan, now Michael Jordan Nissan in Durham, N.C. Now at Capital, he holds the rank of E2 Level III Sales Consultant and Automobile Sales Consultant and Product Specialist. Griffith sales new and certified preowned Ford vehicles and a large selection of both foreign and domestic vehicles.

Griffith was born in Norfolk Virginia, but raised in Raleigh, N.C. He was educated in the Wake County School system and attended Wake Technical Community College. There he studied HVAC and business. Griffith says God knew he would need help in life, and so He blessed him with Emma, and they celebrate 24 years of marriage together.

Griffith considers himself to be a entrepreneur. He is currently an Independent Business Owner of Total Life Changes and recently accelerated to the level of Director along with his wife, Emma. Additionally, he became a licensed minister to preach the gospel in May of 2005 at New Bethel Baptist Church in Rolesville, N.C. He also serves as Executive Pastor over Ministries to Pastor Kenneth D. Hampton at The Temple of Praise of Raleigh, and is the advisor at Ecclesia Theological Seminary. When Griffith isn’t working he can be found traveling, bowling, fishing, bike riding or watching the sport of martial arts.

His previous years as an active Taekwondo Martial Artist taught Griffith patience, balance, flexibility, posture, speed, timing and power. These are qualities that he has been able to apply to his sales job. “Selling cars requires patience and balance. I must be capable of listening to the needs of my clients and finding the right balance between their likes and needs, while ensuring them that the time is right to buy,” he says.

Griffith says he owes a lot of credit to his grandparents, Cecil and Sadie Griffith who raised him. “They both had successful careers that transformed lives and their community. My grandfather was a WWII Veteran and retired as a Lieutenant at Polk Youth Center in Raleigh. My grandmother was a Parks and Recreation Supervisor at Walnut Terrace Recreation Center in Raleigh. They were also long time active workers at Davie Street Presbyterian Church. Growing up watching them instilled strong work ethics and integrity in me,” he says.

More than anything, Griffith says he enjoys helping and meeting new people. The car sales industry is a tough one and he has been able to survive only because he has remained tough. “With the changing economy, people’s buying power changes also due to layoffs and downsizing of companies. When no one has money to purchase a vehicle, I am unable to make money as well. These are the times when I have learned to truly appreciate those who support me when deciding to purchase a new car,” he says.
