My family has been serving this community of St. Marys for three generations now. My grandfather was a teacher in St. Marys and my father ran the Edward Jones office in St. Marys before his retirement. I have continued serving this community as an Edward Jones financial advisor.

So, my primary goal is to help individual investors develop an investment strategy geared toward their unique, long-term goals. Whether you need to save for a child’s college education, reduce taxes or plan for retirement, I can help.

I attended Ohio Northern University and graduated in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree with a focus on international business and economics. I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2008, and I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2017.

My spouse, April Elsass, and I have two children, Bennett and Lincoln, who keep us very busy. Besides the family, I am an active member of the community, serving as past president for St. Marys Rotary and currently as assistant governor. I also am a past board president for Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce.

My Branch Office administrators, Rachel Kleister, Marge Cook and Sandra Boesche, have over 36 years of combined experience and are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Please don’t hesitate to call on them with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general.

I would like to help provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed, financially sound decisions. Please contact me to discuss your situation and options.
