About Jerron McDonald

Why I'm an Advisor


Growing up, I was inspired by my grandma. Despite losing her mother at a young age, she took on the responsibility of supporting her siblings and worked tirelessly to provide for them. Starting as a waitress, she worked her way up to become the owner of the Perkins restaurant in downtown Fargo, ND. Later, she transitioned to real estate and used her success to help others with affordable living. My Dad mentioned that there would be times that he would come home as a kid and not have furniture because my Grandparents gave it to a family that needed it more than they did. They were able to do these things because they worked hard and planned for the future with a team of professionals. As a financial advisor, I strive to help people like my grandma achieve their dreams, provide a better life for their families, and live a generous life.

    Tim Gamrath

    Tim Gamrath has been a Financial Consultant with Thrivent since 1991. He specializes in solutions for small businesses and personal retirement planning both the accumulation and the distribution side. Something that sets Tim apart from other advisors is he believes in helping people be wise and more tax efficient with their money. 


    I’ve been married to Kristin for 34 years. We are proud parents of adult children: Courtney, Cade, and Carly Jo. Members at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Osseo, MN I enjoy gardening, fishing, barbecuing and spending time with family. I've been in the financial services world since 1987 and working for Thrivent since 1991. I really enjoy the retirement planning focus, both the accumulation and the distribution side. Helping people be wise with money and more “tax efficient” along the way is something, I feel, sets me apart from other planners. And working for a membership organization of Christians allows me to help people with their stewardship and charitable causes. Giving back to their churches, charities, and communities is one of the most rewarding things we can do.
