Jay Weyers is the founding partner of the firm. He began his career in 1996 with Aid Association for Lutherans. Aid Association for Lutherans merged with Lutheran Brotherhood in 2002. Jay’s award-winning career at Thrivent Financial for Lutherans created a need for additional client services and Carrie Weyers left the food industry to manage his office.
They joined New England Financial and continued a rewarding practice helping people achieve their financial goals. Jay and Carrie have come to recognize that their own individual skill sets complement each other and provide quality service for their clients.
In 2008, they began a new chapter in their professional lives by establishing Weyers Financial Partners.
WMFP started when Scott McKeever joined Jay and Carrie Weyers in their agency. Scott brought an extensive securities background from his working history at New England Securities, LaSalle Bank, Bank of America, and First Midwest Bank. Joining forces allowed them to blend their complimentary talents to genuinely help people in rich, personal, and meaningful ways. To honor the partnership, Weyers McKeever Financial Partners was created.
Kasey Cacciottolo came on board to provide administrative support. She works evenings to help the team keep up with the requirements of the growing business.
The business expanded westward to the Rochelle area when a partnership began with John Schinzer in 2013. John’s long and outstanding career in the financial services business where his value of putting clients first made his addition to the team an easy one. As John eased out of the business, the relationship with his beloved community and friendships he has fostered continues as he assumed the role of Business Development in Rochelle, IL.
Jay, Scott and Carrie joined National Life Group and Equity Services, Inc. Starting in August of 2017 WMFP started an affiliation with Lake Shore Financial Group based in Chicago, Illinois.
