Jeff Beck is a native of Anamosa, IA and a graduate of Wartburg College in Waverly, where he majored in Computer Science and minored in Math. Jeff was a letter winner in the Wartburg football program and then began his coaching career with the Knights. Jeff currently lives in Waverly, IA with his wife and 2 children.
After graduating from Wartburg in 2001, Jeff coached football at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, where he also earned his Master’s in Education. Jeff then felt the pull back to Waverly and Wartburg where he coached full time for several years, worked in student support services, and served as the Director of Alumni/Parent Relations and Annual Giving beginning in 2007. Then in early 2013, just as the Affordable Care Act was taking shape, he was asked by Jim Willis to join him in the employee benefits industry. This gave Jeff the opportunity to utilize his passion for serving others by helping clients navigate the ever-changing health insurance and benefits world.
In October of 2015 Jeff branched off to start his own business (Beck Financial & Insurance) where he assisted businesses with their employee benefits and planning, as well as helping families protect their finances and plan for their future. During this time, he got to know Justin & Jerry at Group Benefit Partners. Realizing the synergy that existed in both entity’s client focused service approach, Jeff knew that joining forces with Group Benefit Partners was the best way to continue to enhance the level of service his clients would receive.
Jeff announced his integration as a Partner in the Group Benefit Partners family in 2018.
