Jane Rouser

Client Service Administrator
 

Jane has happily lived in the Rice Lake area all of her life.  She has been blessed with a wonderful husband of 41 years, two lovely daughters and two grandchildren.  Jane worked for a CPA firm for 25+ years and decided she needed a change and thought that the cute little house on the corner of Knapp and Wilson would be a fun place to work.  Well, it all worked out according to God’s plan and she has worked for Business & Estate Advisers for 12 years now.  Jane loves to spend time in Colorado enjoying her Grandchildren and the beautiful scenery.  She enjoys anything outdoors…gardening in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter and dabbling in watercolor any time of the year.  Her husband is retiring this year so new adventures await!
