Dustin Hester graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Accountancy degree with a minor in management. He spent thirteen years doing corporate accounting and financial analysis for companies in the health care and defense contracting industries. His desire to start his own business, his love of paintball and Oklahoma City’s need for a nicer, more parent-friendly paintball park is what encouraged him to create Battle Park.
“I used to be one of the fastest kids on my team in little league baseball and I loved stealing bases. The adrenaline rush of sliding into second or stealing home was like no other! I finally found that rush again when I started playing paintball in 1998. I was immediately hooked!”
Dustin’s wife, Leslie Fretwell Hester, attended Sweet Briar College, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She spent several years running the family business, most notably Sycamore Square South Apartments in downtown Oklahoma City. Her love of running a business and hosting parties has helped her to add a special woman’s touch to Battle Park.
