Dwight Short


The information you will see on this page is a secular “bio” that is the world’s way of listing important highlights in someone’s career. More important than any of these listings is the simple truth of Dwight’s acceptance of Jesus Christ as his personal Savior when he was a teenager. He adopted Matthew 6:33 as his theme for life: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” This is still the best indication of who Dwight seeks to be, and what he hopes to achieve in his life. By offering himself as a consultant; speaker; and author on Biblical issues relating to investors and advisors, he continues to work toward that goal.

Dwight completed more than 34 years as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch, taking full retirement on August 3, 2005, having achieved the title of First Vice President, Investments and the CIMA designation. "Not a single client complaint during his entire tenure.”

Dwight's passion for serving Christ and his involvement in athletics has resulted in his being a lifetime trustee of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He has been involved in many international mission trips emphasizing both sports and business relationships. He loves to share with groups of all sizes who would like to know more about how they can participate in being ambassadors for Christ using the language of sports as a common bond to share the gospel with others.

Dwight is married to Marlene (Klee) since June, of 1966, and daughter Jodi lives with her husband Matt Fogelson in Oakland, California along with grandson, Jed. Their son Blair lives in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife Joy (Robertson) and their three sons, Spencer, Aidan, and Ty. Dwight grew up in Delta, Ohio, (near Toledo); attended Bowling Green State University as a math major in education; graduated from the Weatherhead School of Case Western Reserve University with an MBA in 1970, emphasizing Banking and Finance. After teaching and coaching for four years, he joined Merrill Lynch in 1971, working as a Financial Advisor and from 1980 to 1985, serving as an office manager for the west side office of Merrill Lynch.
