The Team

Jonathan Marcus


Chicago, IL

In an era where online communication is quickly replacing real time presence, Jon continues to provide Lakefront’s clientele with his personal touch. Jon began his career in the futures and options industry with a small brokerage firm in Chicago. After gaining extensive experience at the company, Jon and his partner Nick co-founded Lakefront Futures and Options, L.L.C. in February of 1997.

In addition to trading and hedging, back office support, margins, and day-today compliance matters, Jon’s primary responsibility is client relations, which he takes great pride in doing. He combines his professional knowledge of the industry with an ability to connect directly with most everyone he works with. Jon truly believes that by better understanding his clients’ personalities and goals, he is uniquely positioned to help direct them to success.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Sociology, Jon resides in the northern suburbs of Chicago with his wife and two sons.
