Jon Evans, CFP®, AIF®, is a Lead Advisor at Foster Group. In this role, he assists with the delivery and implementation of financial plans and client service needs. Jon is also responsible for coordination of the firm’s marketing efforts and manages event administration.
Jon graduated from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing and Finance. At Bethel, Jon was also a member of the football team and considers the lessons learned on the gridiron an invaluable part of his education and experience.
Growing up, like most kids, I played a lot of sports. One of the most valuable lessons I learned was the importance of teamwork. Teamwork is one of the reasons I chose financial planning as a profession. It’s also an intrinsic part of how we deliver wealth management services here at Foster Group. I enjoy evaluating each of our clients’ situations and partnering with them to achieve what is most important to them.
Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters. We’re in the “toddler phase” right now, and very, very busy! Local parks, the zoo, and swimming pools are frequent summer-time “hang-outs.”
I also enjoy writing and performing music, and regularly lead worship at our church. Other activities I enjoy include football, hunting, and downhill skiing.
One of my favorite quotes is from Charles R. Swindoll: “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” My dad used to say this to me frequently when I was growing up. I’ve learned that we often have two choices in tough situations; we can resent our circumstances and let them define us or we can choose to learn from what’s happened and positively move forward.
