What does “Corsalus” mean?

Our Name

Corsalus. We created this name as a reflection of who we are and what we believe is most important in our work’s impact with our clients. 

The word “cor” means heart and mind. Our heart is the place where our closest dreams and aspirations live. When these dreams, in alignment with one’s mind, are uncovered and shared during the financial planning process, we believe it leads to making decisions that are most meaningful. 

The word “salus” means good health, well-being, and prosperity. Through our work with clients, we have found that these are the underlying principles that each person ultimately wishes to achieve in their life. By working with our clients in a way that is centered around the things that are most important to them, we seek to ensure that they feel confident in the financial decisions that they make. 

What are the goals of Corsalus Financial?

Our Vision

We are a team who strives to make a difference in the lives of our clients, as well as in the community around us. We understand that life is about the moments and we value how our clients choose to spend their time. We work with our clients to uncover and understand the things that are closest to their hearts and that they are most passionate about. After prioritizing these important matters, we collaboratively work with our clients to create a financial plan to help our clients envision and understand how to get there. And, we remain in their corner to help along the way. 

Our goals are centered around enhancing the lives of individuals so they are living their lives to the fullest and feeling confident about the financial decisions that they make. We not only want to celebrate the accomplishments that happen along the way in our clients’ lives, but we also take the time to recognize the ‘little things’ that go on because they sometimes matter the most.

Meet the Team

Jason Dobrzynski

Jason Dobrzynski has been a Financial Advisor since 1999. When working with individuals, he takes a holistic approach to financial planning that focuses on the person and not the money. He believes that most people have dreams for their lives that are closely guarded and beliefs about their money that are unexamined. By taking his clients through a comprehensive financial planning and visioning process, specific goals can be identified, as well as obstacles that stand in the way. Jason then works with his dedicated team to develop a plan to put strategies together as part of a person’s overall financial plan designed to support more balanced and fulfilling lives.

Jason is a proud graduate from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics. He is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner.

His passion for serving his community has led to him to becoming part of the Rotary Club of Western Springs, as well as involvement in organizations such as the Western Springs Business Association, and Financial Planning Association.

Jason is happily married to his lovely wife, Kristin and a proud Father to their two children. Away from work he enjoys his weekly exercise routine, his annual family trip to northern Wisconsin, and traveling anywhere with his family to gain new life experiences and appreciation.
