Jennifer des GroseilliersJD
CEO and Owner of MassMutual Illinois
Jennifer des Groseilliers has achieved many of her life goals, yet she has found her greatest success in helping others. A lawyer, award-winning financial service provider, wife, mother of three, and former Division 1 basketball captain, Jen is most proud of knowing that she has motivated and inspired others to succeed.
After practicing law for three years, Jen was drawn to financial planning as a way to make a positive impact on people’s lives. In 2001, she joined Ameriprise and discovered that her legal training provided her with keen insights into financial markets, tax ramifications of financial decisions, and financial planning strategies. She quickly distinguished herself as a top financial advisor. The coaching and motivational skills she discovered as an athlete translated to business, and soon she was helping other advisors achieve similar success.
Fast-forward to today, and Jen is now General Agent of MassMutual Illinois, a fast-growing Chicagoland-based financial services firm dedicated to helping clients create and preserve wealth. The firm’s strength and differentiator lies in the diverse backgrounds, experience and specializations of its 135 advisors, and an unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional client service. The team’s diversity and wide range of skills allow the firm to offer comprehensive services by leveraging the creativity and expertise of all team members for the benefit of clients.
Relentless in pursuing her vision of a firm that is a leader in the marketplace, Jen seeks recruits who share in her core values: trustworthiness, intelligence, good work ethic, and a passion for helping people. Her top priority is to foster an environment where the financial professionals on her team have the support, guidance, and tools necessary to succeed. In doing so, she has built a culture that values diversity, collegiality, collaboration and winning.
Jen’s capabilities as both a financial advisor and leader have won her the accolades of clients, company representatives, and industry experts. She is a cum laude graduate of the New England School of Law and received her Bachelor of Arts from State University of New York Buffalo. Jennifer also holds Series 7, 24, 66, 4 and 51 securities licenses.
Jen and her spouse live in Glenview, Illinois with their three children. The family enjoys spending time in their small cabin in New Buffalo, Michigan, riding bikes, visiting parks, and enjoying quality time together.
