Every good cause has an even greater effect.
Jerry K. Ask Investment Services

Lending a hand. Raising a spirit. Motivating a child. Donating to a worthy cause. Giving back takes many forms.

In Jerry's case, as a multi-sport athlete in college, he understands the personal character that sports can build – the admirable attitude of teamwork and hard work, the dedication to pursuing goals and the exhilaration of achieving them. In his devotion to giving back to his community by spreading the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, Jerry has coached young people in more than 900 games in basketball, softball, baseball and soccer.

Along with the importance of physical fitness, Jerry also places an emphasis on the spiritual side of life. Currently, you'll find him serving as a Sunday school volunteer. Jerry has also served as an adult Sunday school leader, as a game leader in AWANA and as driver of the church bus.

In addition, Jerry is an animal lover. Each week, since the Cedar Rapids flood of 2008 he feeds the stray cats and kittens that were abandoned and left behind. Jerry has rescued, spayed/neutered and found homes for over 30 cats.

Ever since Monica, our operations manager, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, she has been active in support groups for others who've been diagnosed with cancer. She is team captain of the group she organized for the annual Especially For You® Race Against Breast Cancer, held in Cedar Rapids every October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Monica hopes the strength, determination and faith she portrayed throughout her diagnosis, surgeries and treatment will serve as encouragement to others.

We believe giving back is one of the biggest things one can do in life. And it remains one of the guiding principles of our firm and our lives. As part of our retirement income planning, we can help you create an estate plan and leave a legacy to the causes or charities you wish to help.
