Jesse Eiynck is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional with over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. He became an independent financial advisor specializing in sustainable, responsible and impact investing in 2004. In 2013 Jesse founded Bluprint Financial, an independent, full service financial life services firm.
Graduating from Hamline University in St. Paul, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and a minor in Business Management, Jesse recalls the dilemma of choosing between joining the Peace Corps or joining the business world and paying those student loans. The business world won that debate initially. Over three years he managed the investment portfolios of clients at multiple bank branch offices while also being promoted to branch manager at a regional bank. Occasionally clients questioned the environmental, social and governance records of the corporations that were in the portfolios provided them. Meanwhile, Jesse continued to question his place in the business world. In 2003, still feeling unsatisfied in his “executive suit” he read an article about socially responsible investing (SRI) which sparked a flame for creating positive change in the world through economics.
In February of 2004, partnering with a nationally renowned SRI firm, he hung his own shingle out; starting a practice focused on merging financial life planning with socially conscious investing. The tug of serving a purpose beyond profits simply wouldn’t stop pulling. He believes in sustainability not only for our planet but also for our families, communities, and financial portfolios. Truly believing that all of us have the right to find blessed contentment in life; Jesse puts his heart and skills into helping his clients align their personal values with the holistic, pragmatic realities and dreams of their past, present, and future. Jesse believes his best skill is in providing education, an ongoing center point of his consultative approach.
When not helping people at Bluprint Financial, Jesse can usually be found with his two favorite ladies, his wife Kate and daughter Alexandria. They enjoy their battles with the local wildlife while tending to their organic garden and strive to be better gatherers of the bluffland foragables. For Jesse, serenity and personal zen are a joyful retreat while roaming southeastern MN, searching for opportunities to fly fish and hike in solitude.
