Jason has a knack for being able to translate his knowledge into simple, every day,  actionable advice. The most rewarding part of Jason’s day is when he hears a client whisper to their spouse, “I feel better now.”  That simple phrase is  what keeps him going, and really captures what the Eliot Rose firm stands for.

Maybe we should change Jason’s title to President of Calm and Reassurance.

Sports – frustrated tennis competitor, but lives for ping-pong (no, seriously).

Community Guy – Generous volunteer who helps several local boards with financial planning and advice. He loves teaching and mentoring new financial advisors in ways that get them excited. This stuff IS Jason’s passion and he loves giving back.
