David Jones




David Jones knows what it’s like to start out young and work his way up. At the ripe old age of 16 he started as a runner for TIS Insurance Services. That experience and the mentors he met there influenced his decision to pursue a career in the financial services industry. Now a Financial Advisor and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ professional for Raymond James & Associates, Inc. Member NYSE/ SIPC, he is happy with his decision to join their team. “I transitioned to Raymond James three years ago and could not be more pleased with the firm’s commitment to clients, employees and the communities in which we live and work,” Jones stated. “We build trust with clients to provide financial security and emotional well-being. Additionally, we pride ourselves on being the premier alternative to Wall Street, with all the resources of the big firms while still maintaining a customer centered approach to business.”

Being a proud supporter of Knoxville comes naturally to Jones. His mother is a fifth generation Knoxvillian with strong ties to the community. “I love Knoxville, particularly downtown. I have lived in the Arnstein Building for the past five years, and I do not have plans to move anytime soon. There are always events taking place downtown from the Farmers Market, to live music, and ice skating at Christmas,” he said. He also believes in giving back to the community he loves. “I am a proud supporter of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley. I feel intervening early in a child’s life will provide them with the tools they need to meet their full potential,” he explained. “I think hope for the future is one of the best gifts you can give someone.”
