Jesse Rodriquez is the Founder and President of Rodriquez Wealth Management. Jesse has served as a financial advisor to wealthy families for nearly three decades, beginning his career in the investment advisory industry as an intern at the age of nineteen. He has been working with many of the same client families, their second and even third generations ever since.

While the practice has undergone substantial asset growth (all organic), his handpicked and best in class team stands ready, willing and able to accept new client relationships.
