Client Service Manager
Tj grew up in Clarksville, TN. His first true taste of service to your country came when both his parents deployed to Iraq after 9/11. 15 years later, at their behest he accepted an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. He graduated with a commission as an Army officer. While in the Army he received a degree in Psychology. He used the degree liberally during his over six years leading Soldiers. Home came back on the radar after the Army posted him to Fort Campbell, KY. In 2022 Tj finished out his time in service.
He joins Ellis & Company after working for Gold Medal Waters, a Colorado based financial advisory firm. Prior to that Tj was a staff officer with the 101st Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade. Tj strives to continuously learn, knowing that the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. In keeping with this, he’s studying for the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® examination. He will help our team prepare for meetings and execute the strategies prepared by Eric & Kathy, our financial advisors.
Tj is happily married to his wife, Emmalei, and together they have two handsome boys Eli & Connor, with hopes of more on the way. They enjoy the outdoors throwing frisbee, playing spikeball and sand volleyball whenever their schedules allow for it. Tj also loves reading books, typically on faith or investing. Some of his favorite authors include John Piper and Tim Keller. He is currently serving on the small groups team at LifePoint church as well as on the Relevant Student Ministry team at Grace Community Church.Email Tj
