When Redbook Magazine went looking for America’s hottest husband, native Charlottean Meghann Hasty knew she had the perfect guy for them in her husband, James.
Despite being a busy mom to four children under age 7, Meghann took the time to enter James, 38, into Redbook’s 2014 Hottest Husband contest. Although over 1,500 submissions were entered, the choices have narrowed to just 25, including James Hasty. The couple lives in Harrisburg.
Married for 12 years, Hasty, 32, feels her husband is extremely deserving of the “hottest husband” title and the winning prize trip to Curacao. While she admits she finds her husband very attractive, the true reason she submitted his name for consideration is because she wanted to honor him with more than just words.
“He works so hard to provide for us, often laying down many of his wants or extra activities, to give us what we need. Not only that, but coming home to four rather loud kids, even though they are such blessings, takes a lot of daily patience. And we haven’t had an extended vacation together, alone, in over seven years.”
When he’s not gracing the pages of Redbook, James Hasty works as a financial adviser for a financial company in Charlotte. His hobbies include woodworking, renovating their house, volunteering as an assistant coach for his son’s soccer team, and working with the Charlotte 24/7 prayer room Justice Project to reach out to a fragile inner city neighborhood.
