Jared Kennedy

Founder, Financial Advisor

Having spent time at firms large and small, it was evident that to truly do the work clients required, an open and unbiased framework was needed. In 2022 Jared founded Chaparral Wealth Advisors to better serve his clients and provide truly independent wealth management.   His focus is on financial planning and goal oriented asset management.  Beginning with the end in mind has proven to be the most successful path towards financial independence.  

Jared grew up in Shallowater, Texas and attended Texas A&M, graduating in 2002 with a BS in Agricultural Development.  After a few years in agricultural lending, Jared started his wealth management career with Morgan Keegan, a regional powerhouse, and has spent time at Morgan Stanley and Wunderlich/B. Riley Wealth Management.  

Jared calls Aledo, Texas home and he and his wife Lana have three children, Gus, Bridget and Joe.  He is an avid outdoorsman and plays guitar most Sundays with the band at Parker County Cowboy Church.
