JoLynn Free


Jolynn is Co-Founder and Partner of CFM Wealth Partners. She began her financial career in 1980, when Malcolm Cooper convinced her to leave the world of arts fundraising behind.

She has been honored by the financial industry for her advancement of professional women, and by the community for chairing a wide variety of organizations. SAFE, the Austin Community Foundation, Seton Cove, All Saints’ Church, and both the Quin Foundation and Church Corporation of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas are all close to her heart.

Jolynn’s undergraduate and graduate degrees in Theatre from the University of Texas at Austin, and her background in arts education and management still inspire her interest. She and her husband Gregg include the arts in their travel, and a love of literature and personal writing consume much of her free time. 

Asked about the best moment of the last year, Jolynn said “It’s a tie: attending our grandson’s high school graduation and seeing our daughter’s new house in Homer, AK, and receiving a quilt made for me by a dear friend.” Her aspiration: “Just this: I have exactly the life I want, though I could use some more swan boat rides on Lady Bird Lake.”
