Meet Derek JumperDerek Jumper, part of the financial advisors in Nashville from Bluewater Financial LLC

As a partner at Bluewater Financial LLC, Derek Jumper helps retirees and pre-retirees work towards their financial goals to help them retire with the confidence of being able to travel, spend time with their grandchildren and enjoy life to the fullest. He is a licensed attorney at law in Tennessee, an Investment Advisor Representative, and an insurance producer. Additionally, Derek has passed the Series 65 securities exam.

Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, Derek’s professional career has encompassed a number of paths that led him to where he is today. After graduating with honors from Washington & Lee University in Lexington, he worked in Washington, D.C., as press secretary for the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee. He also served as media director for the American Forest & Paper Association.

Derek’s most notable accomplishment living in the nation’s capital was meeting his wife, Johanna. The couple soon moved to Knoxville, where they both earned their juris doctorates at the University of Tennessee College of Law. They married two weeks after graduation and moved to Nashville. Derek practiced law and served as assistant attorney general for the State of Tennessee, but he still felt he hadn’t quite landed on the job he was meant to hold to do the most good.

In 2014, Derek joined his father in the financial services business, and Bluewater Financial LLC was born. The father-son duo and their team of financial advisors in Nashville proudly serve more than 250 active clients.

Derek and Johanna live in Nashville and are members of St. George’s Episcopal Church. They have a beautiful boy, Jackson, who attends St. Paul Christian Academy. They also have two golden retrievers, Belle and Traveller, who shed relentlessly! Away from the office, Derek is an avid trail runner and photographer. Johanna is a commercial real estate partner at Bradley Arant Boult Cummings.
