Jerry Fitzpatrick Retirement Announcement

March 17, 2023

Dear Clients and Friends,  

We are simultaneously happy and sad to share the retirement announcement of Jerry Fitzpatrick, principal at CJBS. Jerry will be retiring on March 17, 2023.  

Jerry and fk advisors merged into CJBS at the beginning of 2020. As a CPA for over 35 years, Jerry has been a trusted advisor to his personal and business clients. In this time, his expertise in sales tax, income tax, and non-profit accounting has benefited his clients tremendously. This, when coupled with his hands-on approach in addressing client issues, has made him an invaluable part of the firm.  

Jerry’s retirement was predicated on the fact that his clients would be taken care of properly.  To that end, it was important for him to see and experience the culture of CJBS before stepping away. Jerry and fk advisors’ tax and accounting clients are being overseen by Darren Jossel as well as Michele Cornelius – who worked on the fk team for many years. The audit practice will be handled by Ryan Guedel and Reme So – who was also an integral part of fk advisors’ team. 

While we will miss Jerry’s insights and genuinely upbeat personality, he will now be able to spend more time with family—which now includes three grandchildren along with his son and daughter. 

Jerry’s plans for the future also include keeping active in his community and auto shows where he can showcase his 1955 Ford pickup truck.  

Please join us as we wish Jerry all the best in this new chapter in his life.
