Chad Klassen assumed his destiny was to take over the family farm, as it was for so many of his friends and contemporaries, but an injury to his rotator cuff, caused when he came up short on a jump while he was engaged in motocross, launched him in a completely different direction--a path that landed him where he is today, a financial advisor for Edward Jones in St. James.

He started in the financial services industry in 1999, and he was hired by Edward Jones in 2007. He purchased the building he’s currently working in Jan. 1, 2014, and he officially opened in February.

Klassen will be hosting an open house at his office June 12 from 2-6 p.m.
