Jonathan Kreps is the CEO of J.D. Kreps Financial Group, Inc.
A passion for helping people achieve their financial goals led Jon to establish J.D. Kreps Financial Group in 1999. The seeds of the firm, however, were sowed by Jon more than 20 years earlier as a boy growing up in Willmar, Minn. (See Jonathan’s Story).
In 2010, Jon completed the rigorous requirements necessary to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, the recognized standard of excellence for personal financial planning. As a CFP®, Jon has extensive knowledge of estate, tax and retirement planning, as well as investments* and the preservation of assets.

Jon has served as Board Chair and Treasurer for many years of his service to CCS and RHF. He presently is not on any boards as he is focused on his children, his wife, and his personal health at this stage of life.
