Chet R. Bennetts, CFP®, ChFC®, CLF®

Financial Planner

Chet’s personal mission statement is to “serve with a purpose that is greater than merely self-preservation.” Whether helping a surviving spouse figure out how life will work alone, working with a young college graduate to set up their first budget, helping a family run their business/farm to continue their family legacy, or assisting a retiree with all the “what now” questions; Chet knows that by serving people in this manner, he is making a difference in people’s lives and in the community.

Serving people is a passion of Chet’s. It began with enlisting in the Marine Corps (1998-2007) where he had a great indoctrination into what honor, courage and commitment mean. Being able to translate that into civilian life after being medically discharged was a bit challenging for him at first. But Chet was soon able to find his new mission and he ran with it both personally and professionally. Outside of serving clients, he coaches young adults in leadership principles and volunteers in many aspects of his church; including serving on the board, leading worship and working with the youth. Having played football in college, Chet loves coaching and has coached all ages from YMCA flag to high school athletes.

Chet has been married to his wife, Sarah, for almost 20 years and they have three kids. His family lives on a small farm west of Denton where they raise chickens, ducks, bees and koi fish. They all love to travel and go on short-term mission trips during the summer.
