I have the best job on the planet.  This is why I came to Edward Jones instead of another Financial firm. We take care of our people. They are our families.  I am honored to have my office here in Poulsbo with so many wonderful people.

Ted Jones–the son of Edward D. Jones Sr., founder of the financial-services firm that bears his name–wrote the following response when questioned “Why are you not interested in taking Edward Jones public and becoming a multi-billionaire?”

His rationale is a symbol of the company’s culture that still exists today.

  • I am the richest man in America.
  • I have a wife who loves me in spite of my faults.
  • I have four dogs. Two love only me. One loves everybody. One loves no one, but still is very loyal and follows me everywhere I go on the farm.
  • I have a horse I love to ride around the farm, and best of all she comes to me when I call her.
  • I have too much to eat and a dry place to sleep.
  • I enjoy my business.
  • I love my farm and my home.
  • I have a few close friends, and money has never been my God.

Edward “Ted” Jones
1925-1990

This is the man who inspires the established process that we follow every day. This quote hangs on my wall and everyday as I walk in it is a reminder of who I am, and who I want to be. This is Edward Jones.
