Jacob D. Preston
Financial Planner

Jake Preston officially joined Beacon Wealth Consultants in 2020 as a Financial Planner. However, he is not new to the company, having interned at the Roanoke office for two summers previous. Jake attended Liberty University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Financial Planning along with minor degrees in Theology and Biblical Studies. Also of note, Jake worked under the Office of Spiritual Development at Liberty, serving as a Spiritual Life Director and working for the Stages department, where he helped ensure Convocation, the largest biweekly gathering of Christian young people in the world, ran smoothly and professionally.

On a personal note, Jake grew up in Salem, Virginia, and graduated from Salem High School as a distinguished scholar in 2016. He was involved in various activities throughout his time at Salem, including serving as captain of the lacrosse team, member of the golf team, SCA President, and member of the National Honor Society. Jake currently lives in Salem and is a member of Fellowship Community Church.

Jake feels called to build lifelong relationships with people from all walks of life, helping to develop and execute a plan for achieving their financial goals. He is also passionate about Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI), firmly believing that God blesses that which brings honor to him. Jake desires to see all people come to saving faith in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, and as a result, understand that their resources can be used in a way that glorifies God and builds his Kingdom.
