Who We Are
Jeffory L. Stukey, MBA, CFP®
Owner, Wealth Manager
Jeff founded Wichita Wealth Management to address the growing need for wealth management and financial planning services that are focused on the client's needs instead of on product sales.
"Some time ago, before I became a financial advisor, I was concerned about my own retirement funding. As I searched for help, I discovered that most of the financial advisors I met with were primarily product salesmen. As I talked with friends and relatives, I realized that I was not alone in my need for a fiduciary, fee-only, financial advisor; someone who would put my interests first, without conflicts of interest. As part of a five-year process, this experience prompted me to get the necessary training, licenses and registrations to become a fiduciary, fee-only, financial advisor."
"What I enjoy most about my job is getting to know my clients and developing relationships that allow me to deliver financial peace of mind for life's journey. I believe everyone has a right to competent, objective and professional wealth management at a fair price."
Jeff has over 30 years of business experience. He ran his own consulting firm for eight years and was financial manager of another organization for five years. Along the way, he did information technology consulting for companies including Cargill Meat Solutions, Preferred Health Systems and USF Dugan Trucking. He has taught business courses at Emporia State, Truman State and Wichita State Universities. He was on the faculty of the WSU Professional Financial Program for two years where he taught the "Employee Benefits, Retirement and Ethics" class, which is part of the course requirements to become a Certified Financial Planner - CFP™ practitioner.
Jeff earned his MBA degree from Emporia State University. He completed the Certified Financial Planner Professional Education Program through the College for Financial Planning in 2006; the institution has been a leading provider of financial services education since 1972. He became a Certified Financial Planner - CFP™ professional in 2009.
Along with his wife Margaret, Jeff lives in Wichita, Kansas. They have three grown children; two daughters and one son. Jeff is an avid reader, especially of history, and loves to walk, bike, swim and garden. He is a member of a local church where he is involved with the Welcome Ministry and Life Group Ministry.

Jonathan R. Harner, CFP®
Jonathan grew up in Manhattan, Kansas and graduated from Kansas State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Food Science and a minor in Agricultural Economics. Shortly after graduating, he moved to California to pursue a career in food production with Leprino Foods, the world’s largest producer of mozzarella cheese.
Jonathan went through Leprino’s management trainee program before being promoted to a supervisor in the nutrition products department. As a supervisor, he oversaw ten to twelve employees working in a complex process that produced multiple products. This experience was invaluable training in leadership and interpersonal skills. It was also baptism by fire in the art of troubleshooting a difficult process. These are critical skills Jonathan brings to the firm.
Over time, Jonathan discovered an interest in wealth management and financial planning. This began what would be a long conversation with Jeff Stukey regarding working for the family firm. He joined the firm in 2016 as an Associate Financial Planner.
He completed the Certified Financial Planner Professional Education Program through the College for Financial Planning in 2017 and completed all the requirements to become a Certified Financial Planner™ professional in 2018.
Jonathan and his wife Annie along with their daughter live in Wichita and love being back in Kansas and near to family. Jonathan loves reading fiction and participating in outdoor sports such as skiing and backpacking.
As Jeff’s son-in-law, the progress of Wichita Wealth Management has always been a part of their conversations. Jonathan and Jeff are excited about continuing the conversation, while working together in the family business and Delivering Financial Peace of Mind for Life’s Journey.
