JASEN BENTON

Owner and CEO
Jasen M. Benton is an American business executive who has been the CEO of OneLegacy Advisors since 2014. He joined the financial world while attending the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, majoring in Economics and Political Science. Starting in the Investment Broker field he quickly achieved Vice President of Investments at AG Edwards, Dain Rausher, and Piper Jaffery.

The start of OneLegacy Advisors. After years of serving clients who purchased burial policies and then going through the burial of his oldest son Derek, who passed away unexpectedly out of state; he decided we could all do better. OneLegacy Advisors was created with a simple concept; there has to be an easier way for people to get the correct information, fund, plan, and help themselves and their loved ones through end of life circumstances. OneLegacy Advisors created a client friendly, easy-to-use physical and virtual planning and delivery system. We ensure our OneLegacy contracted advisors have the most proficient solution available in the Industry, and one that will honor their clients.

Jasen is a veteran who believes in putting family first. He enjoys spending time with his son Zac and daughter Paige as well as hunting, fishing, golf, and of course the Green Bay Packers.

Jasen is a big believer in giving back. OneLegacy Advisors contributes to the Derek Benton Memorial Fund, supporting youth wrestling programs in both funding and volunteering. Jasen and OneLegacy Advisors also sponsor golf events throughout the United States as well as the First Tee program.

Helping others is where it started and helping others remains Jasen’s focus today.
