Jesse M. Swearingen, III, CPASwearingen



Jay joined Bauknight Pietras & Stormer, PA in 1994 and became a shareholder in 2001. As a member of the tax services practice, Jay works primarily with closely-held businesses and their owners in a variety of industries, including real estate, captive insurance, technology, retail, manufacturing, franchise restaurants, construction, and professional service firms. He regularly consults with clients on issues relating to entity selection, sales and acquisitions of businesses, business forecasting, modeling, and debt management.

“I started with BPS when it was in its infancy and had less than 20 people. Today, BPS has more than 80 professionals and staff and satellite offices across the country. I’m impressed with how far we’ve come; we’ve got a great culture here!”

Jay also works closely with the firm's small business department, which provides outsourced accounting solutions. He also serves as conservator for incapacitated persons and minors in Richland County, South Carolina.
