The world of accounting and taxation is complicated and can be difficult to navigate. Jesse Barnes enjoys working with people to better understand the numbers so that they can achieve their goals by making informed decisions, growing their businesses and planning for the future. By keeping an eye on the big picture, paying attention to the details and providing professional advice, we help make a positive difference for our clients.

With over 10 years of accounting experience and the knowledge of the JCCS team, Jesse has helped grow clients’ businesses by providing regular consulting and dashboard summaries, minimizing taxation and working with our specialized services to help clients plan for the future. He recently helped a company become profitable and pay down considerable debt by providing monthly summarized reports and quarterly consulting. With his help, the company’s management team was able to make sense of the numbers and use financial reports to achieve their goals of hiring additional employees and providing more services to clients.

In addition to his career in public accounting, he carries on his passion to help others understand accounting as an adjunct professor teaching advanced accounting, taxation, accounting ethics, and financial and managerial accounting. Outside of work Jesse spends time with his wife and three children enjoying skiing, running and coaching youth sports. He loves to travel, see new things, eat good food, drink good coffee and relax with an IPA.
