T.J. knew he wanted to be a financial advisor from a young age. When his father passed away unexpectedly while T.J. was in college, his father’s financial advisor was there to reassure the family that they would remain financially sound. The comprehensive planning his father and his financial advisor had done prior to his passing helped relieve any doubts they had about their family’s future.
For more than 20 years T.J. has spent his professional career helping others achieve that same kind of security in their financial future. Born and raised in Altoona, Pa., T.J. began his career in Philadelphia as a senior financial consultant where he was responsible for the top 2 percent of his employer’s ultra-high net worth clientele. He moved to Pittsburgh in 2005, continuing his career as a director of client services and then becoming vice president, financial advisor at Fragasso. He is responsible for working directly with clients in the ongoing management and monitoring of their investment portfolios. This includes regular review meetings, implementation of financial plans and ongoing communication. By developing a personal relationship and discovering what the client is passionate about, he utilizes this motivation to help his clients work towards both their personal and financial goals.
T.J. earned his bachelor’s degree in business management from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and a Certified Fund Specialist®. T.J. is also a member of the Financial Planning Association. He currently resides in Upper St. Clair with his family. In his spare time he enjoys getting outdoors to fish, hike and camp. He is an avid reader and, of course, he’s a Pittsburgh sports fan. T.J. is passionate about the community and works with several local charities. But most importantly, T.J. loves spending time with his wife, Chrissy and their two daughters.
