Jay Thomas Braun, CLU®, ChFC®, CASL®

Financial Representative


After 2 years of running a brewery and 4 1/2 years of sailing in the Caribbean and the Mediteranean, I knew I had not found the lifetime career that I was meant to pursue. My career as a Financial Representative with Northwestern Mutual allows me to help my clients achieve the financial security that they need and at the same time provide the flexibility in life that I desire.
