THE jbj INVEST team

James B. Jackson, DDS CFP®


Dr. Jim Jackson, founder of JBJ Invest, was originally a dentist with a knack for the investment world. As his fellow professionals began to ask him for guidance on their portfolios, Jim realized he didn’t just understand finance – he also understood the unique needs of successful professionals and business owners who were too busy to deal with the investing world. Jim now has the unique distinction of being a DDS and a CFP®. In 1985, he became a Certified Financial Planner™ and founded Jackson Financial Company, Inc. and The Jackson Letter before launching JBJ Investment Partners ("JBJ Invest") in 2012.

Dr. Jackson has authored numerous articles and books, including his most recent work, No One Loves Your Money Like You Do, and has received many honors including the Commendation of the ADA Officers and Trustees in 1990 for his work as author, seminar presenter, and consultant. Jim graduated from Duke University and the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry, and concluded with a residency and a teaching fellowship at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.
