Jesse Veenstra

Faculty Advisor

Favorite thing about DCM: Defender Capital Management puts the knowledge and tools I teach in the finance and investment courses into practice. Students have the opportunity to actively manage a substantial amount of money and use the ideas they learned into the classroom in a practical setting. I love sitting back and watching the research,discussion, debate, sometimes arguments, and the discernment of the students as they steward financial resources in the stock market.
