The man behind the name

Jesko Von Koenigsegg

While Christian von Koenigsegg is the founder of Koenigsegg Automotive, it wouldn’t be what it is today without Christian’s father, Jesko Von Koenigsegg. While no longer active in the business day-to-day, Jesko still makes an appearance every year at the Geneva Motor Show at the Koenigsegg stand. And, at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Jesko was there to witness the unveiling of a very special all-new Koenigsegg megacar — the Koenigsegg Jesko.

Pinchcliffe Grand Prix is a film Christian often credited with inspiring him to create Koenigsegg Automotive. Along with taking Christian to the show, Jesko and his wife, Brita, continued to support and nurture their son’s interests. From exposing him to practical engineering in the form of tuning boats and rebuilding mopeds, to sharing business advice from years spent as an entrepreneur, Jesko helped guide his son.

A life lived to the fullest

A life lived to the fullest

Jesko lived a life filled with passion and focused on family, always prioritizing his wife and four children. In addition to his time spent as an entrepreneur and family man, Jesko also had a love of horses and horse racing. He dedicated 40 years to volunteering with sport and even spent 20 years as an amateur jockey. His example of hard work, family, and following his passion was passed on to Christian, and gave him the tools he needed to create Koenigsegg.

After selling his business in 1995, Jesko decided to join Christian’s new company for six weeks to offer his assistance. Six weeks stretched into five years as Jesko became the first Chairman of the Koenigsegg board. During his time with Koenigsegg Automotive, Jesko built the board and put into place many of the procedures, policies, and structures that allowed the business to flourish and grow as the years have gone on.
