Ross joined Stokes Marine as he saw this as his opportunity to help others enjoy the fruits of their labor and live out their dreams on the water. For many years, he focused on helping families plan their finances for a comfortable retirement but now he helps people design their waterfront dream of living on our beautiful waterways and islands. Ross was born and raised in New Jersey but later got the opportunity to attend Stetson University in Deland, Florida then live and vacation in Sanibel Island and Fort Myers. This made his decision to stay in SW Florida a very easy one. Ross is quite active in both physical and leisure sporting activities like golf, tennis, ice hockey and training. However, when the opportunity exists to be out on the water fishing or relaxing, that is second to none.
