*Jason Howell Company is an independent, family wealth management firm run by two owners who consider it their family business. 

Jason J. Howell, CFP® and Douglas W. Tees, MBA, CFP® are both married to patient wives and are dedicated to their kids. They have built a firm with one of Northern Virginia's few sustainable, responsible investment strategies (SRI) and they hope to pass it on to their children someday. 

The firm owners believe that serving families through a process that supports family harmony, preserves family history and nurtures family values is the key to true wealth. It begins with a responsible Investment Strategy and by equipping clients with three (3) tools for creating sustainable wealth. They call this process Family Governance. It goes beyond traditional financial planning by adding the "values management" and family history component.
