Understanding your life priorities is an important part of the relationship with you. It’s not just about markets and returns, it’s about what matters most to you.  I can collaborate to help create a personalized plan designed around you, your family, your goals and your aspirations.

Jon joined Merrill in 2015 after spending more than 11 years with Wells Fargo Advisors. During that time, Jon held a number of roles. He was a portfolio specialist assisting high net worth clients and institutions with portfolio construction. He was also a product manager in its managed money division, a position in which he trained thousands of financial advisors.

Jon is the first child on either side of his family to graduate college and has held a job since he was 15 years old. Paying his way through college, Jon fully appreciates the hard work and sacrifice of clients – and the importance of crafting risk-managed strategies to help them achieve their most cherished goals, for themselves and those they love.

Professionally speaking, Jon’s greatest satisfaction comes from knowing that his knowledge and focus can enhance clients’ lives and legacies.  Jon is a Senior Portfolio Advisor and has his Accredited Asset Management SpecialistTM designation, AAMSTM from the College of Financial Planning Institutes Corp. 

From a personal perspective, Jon’s most memorable moments are spent with his wife, Jill, and their teenage son and daughter. Jon’s passions include staying physically active – skiing with his family in Colorado, hiking in the National Parks, spending time at his family’s cabin on the Black River, and being an active member of his parish in Chesterfield, MO.  Jon is a graduate of University of Missouri-St.Louis, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Finance.

*A Senior Portfolio Advisor can help clients pursue their objectives by managing on a discretionary basis custom investment strategies, selecting from a wide range of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management model portfolios and third-party investment strategies.
