Jason Jack, CFP, FMA

Jason's entrepreneurial spirit and analytical thinking have served him well over the course of his career. Before going into financial services, he was the owner of a successful international software company located in Guelph, Ontario which employed 30 people. He eventually sold the company in 2001.

Jason became a financial planner in 2003 and has significantly grown his business since then, attributed largely to the fact that he's a relatable, hard-working "small town guy." In an industry where advisory firms can feel intimidating for many investors, it is quite the opposite with Jason and his team. He genuinely wants to make a difference in his clients' lives and does so with trustworthy advice and diligent strategic planning. He educates his clients and helps make a difference in their financial futures. 

Jason lives in Drayton Ontario, which is his hometown, and has two children. He has volunteered his time as a member of the Drayton and Community Citizens' Association and on several minor sports teams. He has also volunteered at Ronald McDonald House and as a firefighter. He enjoys being at his cottage and golfing.
