Jerry Smith's portrait

Jerry Smith

Senior Manager, CPA | Chattanooga Office

(423) 702 7697E-mail



Jerry Smith has been in the accounting world for more than four decades. A unique work/study program in high school had him preparing returns as young as age 17. Even so, he remains on the cutting edge of new regulations, focusing on compliance and tax planning. Today, he most enjoys sharing this key knowledge with newer staff members. His depth of experience gives him a much-needed voice in the CPA profession.

Jerry joined HHM in 1987 after working in-house for several prominent corporations. Clients have noticed his dedication to the task as he does their tax planning. He believes in staying until the job is done, even if that means pulling almost superhuman hours at the office. He credits his upbringing on a farm in Dalton, GA for this strong work ethic.

To unwind, he enjoys listening to jazz and watching sports – with college football and baseball at the forefront. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, their five children, seven grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
