Stephen joined the Thiesen Dueker Group in 2013 as an LPL Financial Advisor after becoming passionate about this industry during his time in the NFL. He saw a need for honest, quality financial advice; he wanted to be someone people can trust to deliver sound, accurate advice and guidance. Stephen grew up in Clovis, CA and graduated from Fresno State in 2005 where he played tight end for the Bulldogs. He then spent time with six different NFL teams from 2005-2012. He had the opportunity to be a part of an AFC Championship New England Patriots team in 2007, and an NFC Championship Arizona Cardinals team in 2008. His hobbies and interests outside of work include sports, health, music and most importantly, his family. He and his wife, Katey, are raising two raucous boys, Dysten and Dennen. He supports several charities including Garth Brooks’ Teammates for Kids, the Bulldog Foundation, CareFresno, Fresno Veterans Hospital, and NFLPA’s Real Men Read program, to name a few. Being a part of the Thiesen Dueker Group surrounds him with a wealth of experience, which he values, so that he and his clients can both benefit from the association while he achieves his goals and helps the clients pursue theirs.
