Jon’s Professional Story
Jon discovered early that he had an enterprising itch to scratch. Even in elementary school, he learned that filling a service need (mid-day candy cravings of the students) suited him both in autonomy from the norm and in providing necessary resources in life (money for investing in baseball card collections). Jon explored several other entrepreneurial ventures throughout his years, but ultimately it was time spent in the financial and insurance industry that carved the path toward Retirement Evolutions. He experienced firsthand that even the best products from the best brands had limitations that impacted the thoroughness of people’s retirement planning; namely choice and breadth of focus. So he started Retirement Evolutions to fill that very service need and has never stopped looking for and implementing new ways for the firm to be an optimal retirement planning partner free of the boundaries of conventional financial service firms.
Jon’s Personal Story
Jon is born and raised in Tucson. He briefly sampled some other living environments and certainly enjoys trips to Southern California and Mexico, but Tucson is where his heart is. Jon enjoys a close relationship with his family and most notably with his daughter. You are likely to find them at any one of her activities, traveling somewhere, at the pool or doing something around the house. If Jon isn’t with his family, working or scouring the interwebs, then it’s a good bet he is on a golf course somewhere or thinking about the next time he will be.

“Let her sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world.”
-Napoleon Bonapart speaking about China
General Motors recently announced the pending closure of three U.S. assembly plants and the discontinuation of six cars made at those plants. While large sedans are no longer big sellers in the United States, they remain popular in China, and GM will continue to manufacture them there.LISTEN
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 reduced federal income tax liability for some, but not all, Americans. Wealthy residents of California, New York, and other high-tax states could face a higher tax bill when they file their 2018 return.
While cutting tax rates on ordinary income, increasing the standard deduction and doubling the federal estate and gift tax exemptions, the tax legislation also capped the deduction for state and local taxes (SALT). While once open-ended, the SALT deduction is now limited to $10,000 ($5,000 if married, filing separately).LISTEN
Risk is a necessary element of any retirement plan – because investing in things like stocks which can decrease in value can also give you big increases. Today Jon and Karyn talk about how to manage the risks involved to your own tolerances to give you the right plan with the right amount of risk so that your money will be there whenever you need it.LISTEN
What sneak attacks could try to derail your retirement plans? Well, some include long-term care and other health costs, or kids coming back home as adults. Jon and Karyn discuss these and a number of other things which could throw your retirement plans for a loop if they are not addressed or planned for.LISTEN
We all know what a balance sheet is when it pertains to a business. Well, when we retire, we need to check our personal balance sheet – if it’s out of balance, we may not have the money and resources we need to retire in the first place. Today Jon and Karyn go over the steps which need to be taken to be sure your personal balance sheet is where it needs to be in order to live your best retirement.LISTEN
