Jacob Mills began his career at Waddell & Reed in 2004. Already a licensed electrician, Jacob found himself gravitating towards something he never thought he would, a desk job. So Jacob traded in wriggling under crawlspaces and balancing on ladders for coffee cups and the Wall street Journal. Jacob’s easygoing nature and practical problem solving approach have helped him forge long term client relationships. Jacob believes in a holistic view of finances founded on financial planning and an honest, straightforward communication style.
While not in the office, Jacob plays basketball with a recreational basketball group that has played together for 15 years. His love of sports extends to assisting his daughter on the softball field, and occasionally lending his skills on the basketball court without stepping on the toes of the coach, his wife and business partner, Danielle. When he is not working on a home improvement project either at his own house or someone else’s, he enjoys spending time with his family and hosting backyard barbecues.
Jacob is also committed to community involvement and is an ongoing sponsor of the Albertina Kerr golf tournament.
