Sarah & Mark after EZ Orchard’s pie eating contest. Sarah did well (and was the cutest) in the kid's division and Mark won the adult division!

He spent the decade after college in retail banking—most of that time with KeyBank in and around Salem—working his way up from teller to Assistant Vice President and Branch Sales Manager. He also earned investment and insurance licensure through the bank’s investment division. Mark left banking when he discovered his love for financial planning and tax preparation and joined Johnson, Glaze & Co. in 2003. That same year Mark and Larry launched the wealth management practice that transitioned to JGC Wealth Management, LLC, about a decade later. Today Mark is JGC Wealth Management’s Operations Manager as well as one of our primary advisors.

Mark has always enjoyed working—an afternoon paper route, golf caddying, and working at a drive through dairy were a few of his first jobs. Working side-by-side with his dad, an electrician/contractor, reinforced his good work ethic and love for people. He even got to work for a month at the button and buckle factory his German great-grandpa founded in 1919! Mark has volunteered with several local civic and non-profit organizations over the years, and is currently a member of the Financial Planning Association and an associate member of the Willamette Valley Estate Planning Council.

Married in 1992, Mark and his wife Debbie are blessed with four lovely children, Hope, A.J., Sarah, and Joey. Parenting is lots of fun, takes lots of energy, and is extremely humbling! Mark loves being part of Salem First Baptist Church, reading, golf, tennis, chess, and time with family and friends—especially over a good meal. His latest adventure has been Cub Scouting with A.J.—and hopefully Joey, too, in a few years.

Mark brings his positive outlook, depth of knowledge and dedication to all things financial to his work with every JGC Wealth client. Being a Licensed Tax Preparer helps him view a client’s financial future from a tax perspective and an asset management angle. You’ll appreciate his attention to detail and his commitment to service and communication.
