Meet Our Team

Jerry Prentice, CLU®, ChFC®


For over 40 years, Jerry has been an active participant in one of the most important aspects of any family's wellbeing - the assurance of a stable and rewarding financial foundation.  His clients desires, wishes and needs are of utmost importance to him so, working together to form a well-oiled machine, has become second nature to him and to his clients.

After attending George Washington University, Jerry joined the United States Coast Guard where he served honorably for many years. Upon leaving the Coast Guard, Jerry embarked on a career in the financial services industry which gave him the opportunity to continue his desire to serve others in a manner that could prove invaluable to them.

Sharon Prentice

Executive Assistant

As executive assistant of The Prentice Group, Sharon Prentice PhD, is deeply involved in all aspects of the business-not just the usual duties associated with running an active financial planning practice.

Having a professional background in the field of Counseling Psychology, Sharon’s keen insights and interviewing skills have found their way into helping clients fully form the “bits and pieces of their dreams” and, once crystalized, helps them turn those dreams into achievable goals. Her role as confidant and, oftentimes, life counselor to clients has created an atmosphere of “family” within the agency and has led to lifetime friendships and relationships. She has proved to be an invaluable source to clients and to the daily operations of The Prentice Group.

Hope Grasser

Head of Client Services

Hope brings a wealth of experience to our clients but, truth be known, she has become the living personification of her nickname-“Miss Hallmark”. Always ready to help, our clients know that she will make herself available at a moments notice to jump in and “fix it”-whatever “it” is that needs fixing. She is well versed in all aspects of our industry and keeps us moving like a well-oiled machine.
