In brief: More genetics

Hypertension or high blood pressure is usually genetically passed on although there are some other causes which can be acquired.
These are quite rare for the most part. Stress itself may increase blood pressure in a certain setting but does not cause chronically elevated high blood pressure. 20% of the population in the United States has essential hypertension. Stress is definitely a risk factor.
