Jason Kreke has been married since 2005 and he and his wife Julie have 7 beautiful children (5 boys and 2 girls) and one more little girl on the way. He takes family very seriously, as he believes that God has given him the responsibility to teach, lead and model. He feels called to live his life with simple focus based on a Biblical world view. Jason feels that establishing a community of believers where God’s people are striving to love each other and live Biblically should be a priority for all Christians.
Once he was finished serving five years in the military as an Aviation Electronic Technician on Navy helicopters, Jason returned home from overseas to study at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. After beginning his career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones, Jason began to realize his calling to become a Christian financial advisor. Shortly after being introduced to Mark Minella and the Biblically Responsible Investing principle, it was clear that God was calling him to become part of the team at Integrity Investors.
Jason’s focus is serving his clients’ needs while leading them in intentionally using their money to the glory of God.
