Call him Coach, call him point guard — just don’t call him a slouch when it comes to lawnwork. Jared is dad to Rex and Eli and husband to his lovely wife Jenna, but staying active has always been his first love. Once you see how hard he sweats on the court and on his lawn, you’ll know just how hard he’ll work for you as your financial planner.
With two young sons getting into sports, Jared is right there on the sidelines as coach. Under his guidance, we think the Quakers will have a bright future.
Six foot nothing, and a bank shot that would make Reggie Miller blush. When he’s not coaching from the sidelines, Jared is still putting up numbers on the basketball court.
You won’t beat Jared’s financial expertise — or his love of working and playing on the lawn. The fire pit and clubhouse he built during the pandemic really turn heads in their Plainfield neighborhood.

Non-financial advice from

On relaxing
"If you need to disconnect, try turning your attention to a project in your yard.”
On personal growth
“My friend has a great saying, that relationships are your most important asset. I think we should all work every day to become better partners, parents and friends.”
On travel
“Taking a vacation lets you build a collection of memories to reflect on and share with others.”


Certified Public Accountant (CPA)


Even as a kid, Jared basked in finding a great deal so he could save his money and see his piggy bank grow. Once he learned about the impact of compounding interest, he was hooked on finance. He took a tax course, joined an investment club, and read every article he could find on personal finance. His financial planning career was born.

Jared feels like he never has to “work” because he gets to spend every day helping people in a subject that he loves. He joined Market Street in 2014 after kicking off his career in the tax department of a large, national firm. He’s thrilled to be able to work with our dedicated team, applying his skills to help support our clients’ financial security.

Jared holds a B.S. in Accounting, Finance & Business Administration from Indiana State University. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) and Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Jared gives back by serving on the Young Professional Advisory Board for the Scott College of Business at Indiana State University, as well as the Plainfield Optimist Baseball board.
