Jay Sharifi

Founder and Investment Advisor

For over 17 years, Jay has helped families in Richmond and across the Tidewater region and Northern Virginia develop comprehensive, creative retirement income strategies using investment and insurance products and services. His goal is to create financial strategies for clients’ lifetimes that capitalize on their unique opportunities while working around challenges.

Long a believer that ongoing education leads to improved performance, Jay applies advanced techniques gained while earning his Georgetown University Financial Planning certificate. His method is first to uncover and clarify specific goals. Then, he designs a custom strategy to help pursue them. He assists in implementing and overseeing that strategy, monitoring performance and adjusting it when needed. His holistic planning strategy has helped set him apart in his line of work.

A resident of Arlington, Virginia, Jay is also an active member of the communities in which he lives and works. For seven years, he has been an advocate of Cole’s Closet, a nonprofit organization assisting families with children who suffer from critical, chronic or terminal diseases. He is also a supporter of Medical Missionaries, a Manassas-based volunteer group of more than 200 doctors, nurses, dentists and other medical professionals improving the health conditions of people living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad. Jay enjoys traveling and has also been on multiple church-directed missionary trips to different countries around the world.

Kaycee N. Sirstins

Team Leader

In her role as a team leader, Kaycee does a little bit of everything around the office. She spearheads planning of the firm’s client events, manages its compliance wing and optimizes workflow processes — simply put, Kaycee lends a hand wherever needed. She holds life, health and annuities licenses in Virginia.

Kaycee received her bachelor’s degree in social work from Brigham Young University-Idaho and then entered a career in early childhood education as a preschool teacher. When she felt she couldn’t grow professionally in her position anymore, she went looking for a new direction. She discovered the foundation of the financial field had similarities to the education field: helping others prepare for their futures. She joined Legacy Wealth Management in 2017.

Away from the office, Kaycee can often be found crafting home décor, sewing, reading and spending time with her husband and their many nieces and nephews. She grew up in the Washington, D.C., area with five siblings and now lives with her husband, David, and son, Levi, in Warrenton, Virginia. The couple met through his sister, who is also Kaycee’s best friend.

Grace joined the firm in 2020 after previously working as a marketing assistant and member relations coordinator for a country club in northern Virginia. Her duties at Legacy Wealth Management include greeting guests at the front desk and assisting with the firm’s marketing endeavors.
