John R. (Jack) Yaissle, CLU®, ChFC®, AEP®

Board Chairman

Jack Yaissle founded Cornerstone Advisors in 1983 with a vision for a company defined by its Stewardship Process — a process that starts with listening, really listening, to what its clients have to say.

The heart of Jack’s philosophy is simple. He knows that with listening comes understanding, understanding leads to implementation, and thoughtful, intelligent implementation leads to positive, tangible results.

But Jack’s role does not end there.

As a true Steward, he is passionately committed to monitoring his results over time. His Uncommon Vigilance has made him an authority when it comes to succession planning and business organization, as well as an advisor, mentor, and confidant to the firm’s most important clients — where some relationships are in excess of 30 years.

In addition to his role at Cornerstone Advisors, Jack Yaissle has been an active member of AALU for more than 35 years and has served on numerous national committees.

He is a graduate of Lehigh University and has received the University’s Alumni Award for outstanding service to the school. Jack is active in many professional organizations and holds the designations of CLU®, ChFC®, and AEP®

Jack is actively involved in several philanthropic organizations with a focus on underprivileged children. He was formerly Chair of the Lehigh Valley’s ArtsQuest Foundation. Jack is an avid bird hunter and an offshore sailor.
