Jason Mickool

President - Jason Mickool

President of Florida Financial Advisors, Jason is an industry expert with 25 years' experience. Jason brings experience and knowledge to many aspects of financial planning, most notably high net worth individuals and business owners. 

Jason started his career at American Express Financial Advisors (now Ameriprise) where he was able to demonstrate his integrity and servitude to grow to a Field Vice President. As an Executive for American Express, he received several awards for being a consistent top performer. Although enjoying his career as an executive, Jason always had a passion for helping clients. After leaving Amex, he continued his stared career as a Managing Partner for New England Financial. There he led the country in growth while at the same time was able to get back to his real passion: serving his clients through financial planning. From there Jason joined McAdam as part of the Executive Team where he was able to continue to serve his clients while at the same time provide strategic direction to one of the fastest-growing financial firms in the country. 

While still having a great relationship with McAdam, Jason began McAdam FA Tampa in Tampa, Florida – where he currently resides. After living in Florida, he quickly realized that “Floridians” have needs that only “Floridians” understand, and soon realized the lack of financial planning firms committed to these needs. This led him to the establishment of Florida Financial Advisors, FFA.  A best-of-breed, independent, product-neutral, comprehensive financial planning firm serving the specific needs of Floridians.

In his free time Jason enjoys traveling, windsurfing, playing guitar and spending time with his fiancé Allyson and English bulldog, Bailey.

Steve Schmitt, Tristate Financial Advisors, Field Vice President

Steve Schmittis an industry leader with more than a decade of experience in the financial industry. Steve brings energy, vision, and passion for the financial planning field. He has worked with a wide array of clients including small businesses and business owners, individuals, and families. Steve graduated from Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia and currently resides in South Jersey. He understands the financial needs of the Tristate area.

Steve began his career as a Financial Advisor in Philadelphia where he primarily advised working-class families in the Philadelphia, South Jersey, and Delaware suburbs. He has held several leadership positions and advisor roles for McAdam and Mutual of Omaha Advisors where he successfully piloted marketing systems, recruited and trained dozens of financial advisors, and worked with hundreds of individual clients on retirement planning, tax diversification strategies, risk management, and advanced insurance solutions. Steve has successfully recruited and trained dozens of financial advisors; some of which are the top producers today at their firms. Steve recognizes that the industry has gaps in the areas of financial advisor training and development, comprehensive unbiased client advice, holistic financial planning, and innovative marketing systems for new client acquisition. Thus, Tristate Financial Advisors was born; a fully independent and product agnostic firm with robust advisor marketing and training serving the needs of the Delaware Valley.

In his free time Steve serves as a board member of the NJ Landlord and Property Owners Association, a committee member for Stephen P Schmitt Golf Outing to raise funds and awareness for the University of Pennsylvania brain cancer research, a member of Saint Mary of the Lakes Catholic Church, and an active member of the Highbridge Lakes Homeowners Association.
