Judy Schmeltekopf has been the bookkeeper for Dean, Jacobson Financial Services, LLC, since 2005, handling all internal accounting and reporting responsibilities for the firm. She coordinates with all DJFS staff for the firm’s billings and with the firm’s CPA for all tax reporting and returns. Judy also handles all DJFS payroll duties and business reporting for the firm’s Partners.

Judy graduated with a nursing degree from the University of Texas in Arlington (UTA), however, she never worked as a nurse. Instead, she quickly found her preferred vocation was in business, most specifically the hotel services industry.  Prior to joining DJFS, Judy was co-owner of the hugely successful Amberjacks restaurant on South Padre Island, Texas. Prior to that restaurant venture, she managed several condo properties, hotels, and restaurants/bars on the island as well as a 5-year span working for a successful entrepreneur/restaurateur in northern California.

Judy remains very active away from her office duties.  She has been recognized by Baylor University with an Alumni by Choice decree and is a member of Baylor’s Old Main Society, as well as a lifetime member of Baylor’s 1845 Society.  She has also served on multiple event host committees for charitable organizations, including the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, church committees and events, and served on the Board of Directors for Fort Worth Sister Cities.  Judy currently serves on the Baylor Scott & White All Saints Women’s Health Council and is an active member of Mira Vista Country Club, serving on the club’s Food & Beverage Committee and on the Women’s Golf Committee where she is a past Treasurer.

Judy is married to Jeff Schmeltekopf, President of the firm, and they have four children: Emily (a graduate of TCU and married to Dr. Robert Nichols), Eric (a graduate of Baylor and married to Darian), Charly (a graduate of Baylor and married to Chris Beck), and Ellie (a graduate of Baylor and married to Jonathan Hatley). They are also proud grandparents of five grandchildren; Jeffrey Davis Nichols, William Robert Nichols, Caroline Elizabeth Nichols, Noah Edward Schmeltekopf, and Truett Henry Schmeltekopf, and are anxiously awaiting grandchild #6, due in July 2024. When around the house, Judy loves to work outdoors in her yard, play the piano, and cook. She also loves traveling all around the world with her husband and is an enthusiastic supporter of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and Baylor University athletics. Judy is an avid tennis and golf player, participating in multiple club leagues and tournaments.
