This nattily dressed financial professional—that’s senior vice president and financial adviser, The Walton Group at Morgan Stanley—loves helping families through life’s different stages as it relates to managing wealth. Jesse Walton Jr. has worked with everyone from executives to entrepreneurs, offering wisdom, vision and advice, all while well-dressed. This Marietta resident is father to two sons, who he hopes will be “confident, smart and athletic with strong values”—and good dressers, of course. The self-proclaimed shy child turned into a dandy dresser and career-driven man, noting, “My favorite part of the job is having authentic relationships with my clients.”

In three words, I would describe my style as sophisticated, modern and polished.

The best style advice I ever got was to always keep nice shoes and a nice watch.

If I wasn’t in my current career I’d be a culinary chef.

My earliest style memory is wearing a pair of Ray-Ban shades to my junior prom.

My most trusted possession is my pair of David Donahue cuff links.

I am known for my sport coat collection.

My favorite place to shop for clothes is at Guffey’s.

Magnanni is my favorite shoe designer.

My fashion splurge is an Aurum Brothers bracelet.


My favorite watch is a Tag Heuer.
