Jason Tinklenberg loves to be known as a husband, father, volunteer, mentor, and advisor along with being a golfer, water-skier, hunter and good friend. Jason believes that financial freedom is the money goal - but merely a means to a greater end. That end is a life well lived, a happy family, and a successful business or farm operation. Jason coaches successful people and businesses along the winding and often perilous path to their retirement goals. He strives to design a well engineered stewardship plan that brings true success to our finances, our time, our talents and our relationships. Jason and Julie have three children, Madelyn, Jack and Ana. He is active in church and business leadership but makes sure there is time for family, fun and friends. Jason is at his best putting together all the pieces of a financial puzzle so that leadership people can see the big picture, are challenged to work the plan and live with hope for the future.
