Chris Comer – President

I am a 1999 graduate of Louisiana Tech. Upon graduation, I was commissioned as a 2nd Lt in the USAF, where I served flying on AWACS providing command and control to U.S. and allied forces. I served a tour in Operation Iraqi Freedom, helping launch the war in March 2003. My awards include the Air Medal with one oak leaf cluster for the combat missions performed there.
After leaving the Air Force I moved to Austin, TX, to work as a purchaser for a major homebuilder and pursued an MBA from Baylor University.
I previously served as the CFO for two companies, one a juvenile corrections company and the other a major hospital. I was also the chairman of an Arkansas commission.
I’ve been married 24 years to my beautiful wife, Ashley, who is a teacher in Hallsville ISD. We have three children, Andrew, Austin, and Addison.
I joined Edward Jones in 2013 and opened a branch in Hallsville, TX, with Teresa Coats, a Senior Branch Office Administrator, in 2016.
My goal is to understand what’s most important to you and use an established process to build personalized strategies to help you achieve your goals. I will partner with you throughout your life to help keep you on track to reach those goals.
