About Jon White
I have lived in Ohio my whole life, being born in Canton and moving to Ashland at the age of 12. Upon graduating from high school I attended The Ohio State University-Mansfield campus for two years then moved to Columbus for my junior and senior years. After those two years I graduated in 2004 with a B.S. in Accounting and through discipline, hard work, and sacrifice was able to graduate debt free!
As an accountant, I have always been interested in personal finance topics. I started watching Dave Ramsey on FOX Business in the winter of 2008 and enjoyed his enthusiasm and heart for teaching. In May of 2009 I got married to my beautiful wife, Lisa, and by sticking to our budget we were able to pay for our wedding and honeymoon in cash and combine our finances peacefully with lots of communication and understanding. In April of 2010 I attended Dave Ramsey’s Financial Counseling program* which has equipped me to be able to understand every one of my clients’ unique financial situations, provide valuable information, and inject financial hope using Biblical principles.
Currently my wife and I are on Baby Step 6 which is paying off our mortgage. I personally have a goal to pay it off by the time I’m 40 which is almost five years away. We live in Columbus, OH and are the proud parents of two young sons and a young daughter. We are also involved with our church at Harlem Road United Methodist Church in Galena, OH. In my spare time I enjoy reading biographies, running, and watching all things sports including football, basketball, baseball, and men’s tennis.
Financial Coaching has allowed me to combine my passions of finances, teaching, and helping others by helping people get on the right track financially. My mission statement is to provide financial education by sharing information and injecting hope that is biblically based to everyone who asks from the rich to the poor, with the heart of a teacher. I am more than willing to walk with you on your own personal finance journey and help bring peace to your finances.
I love giving encouragement and hope to people and work with them on identifying and ultimately reaching their financial goals. Financial Coaching is more than just telling you what to do, most of us know what we need to do-live on less then we make, however we have trouble being able to do that. Financial Coaching is walking with you and sharing how to pay off debt, establish a savings program, invest for retirement, or whatever financial goal you.
