After more than 50 years of working in the insurance and financial services industries, Jack has accrued a lot of financial wisdom, but equally as important, it’s what he has learned about serving clients. “I believe that commitment, trust, honesty and personalized service provide the foundation for advisor-client relationships,” Jack said.

Throughout his long career, he has made it his practice to act in the best interests of his clients. “The most rewarding part of being a financial advisor is helping people confidently pursue their financial goals,” Jack said.

Today, Jack not only devotes his time to serving clients, but also assisting our team members. He has in-depth knowledge of investments, insurance, tax, retirement and estate planning issues.

Jack transitioned to Raymond James in September 2020 with the Elevate Private Wealth Management team. He began his career as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch, then at several predecessor firms to Wells Fargo Advisors.
