Jay Freeman

Financial Advisor,  Edward Jones

As a mentor, how can you help with the Fuse community?

Although I’m currently a financial advisor, I was a CFO for a group of companies for over 10 years. As part of the executive team, I’ve helped manage, acquire, merge and start companies. As the CFO, I managed the administration, finance, banking, insurance and information reporting for multiple interrelated companies. I am on the board of directors for the Historic Downtown Kennewick Partnership and Three Rivers. Immunity Foundation. I enjoy giving back and help organizations to grow.


I’ve been in business and finance for over 20 years. As a former CFO, I’ve created corporations, managed banking relationships, managed the financial reporting for multiple interrelated companies and oversaw the information reporting and commuter networks.
