Jason Crum

Jason Crum, Branch Manager

Join us in welcoming Jason! Coming to F&M Bank with six years of banking experience, Jason Crum is ready to lead the Stuarts Draft team. He’s already been out and about in Stuarts Draft, but if you haven’t had a chance to connect with him, drop by our branch!

Much like his team, Jason is community centered. He is an assistant coach for a local youth sports organization and an active volunteer with United Way, Salvation Army and Adopt-a-Highway.

When asked about choosing banking as a career, Jason said, “What I enjoy most about working in banking is being able to help people and make a difference in their lives. Bank clients become family, and there is nothing more satisfying than helping someone gain financial confidence.”

Outside the office, Jason loves to spend time with his wife, Tayler, and 10-month-old son, Mackson. He also enjoys playing golf, spending time with friends, watching sports, attending ODU football games, and interestingly, mowing the grass!

Kacee Fridley, Branch Specialist

Say hello to Kacee! After spending 4 years serving the Craigsville community, Kacee Fridley is excited to make the transition to the Stuarts Draft branch. In total, she brings 7 years of banking experience to the new office.

Kacee is an active community member. Along with Jordan, she has a soft spot for animals and does what she can to help various animal rescues. She also likes to attend community meetings and help raise awareness and donations for area organizations, specifically Foster Love Ministries.

When asked what she loves most about banking, Kacee said, “I enjoy being able to firsthand help all of my customers whether it’s a simple bank transaction to accounts and loans as well! I take pride in being able to open someone’s first account, help them purchase their first vehicle and later with a mortgage!”

Outside the office, Kacee enjoys spending time with her husband, Michael, and two children. Plus, we can’t forget about her two dogs, who are a large part of her family.

Jordan Smitherman, Branch Specialist

Meet Jordan! Transitioning to Stuarts Draft from our Myers Corner (Staunton) office, Jordan Smitherman brings four years of banking experience to the new branch!

Jordan is involved in her community and enjoys volunteering at local animal shelters and working with rescues to help find foster homes and permanent placement for homeless animals. She also likes regularly volunteering at community events through the bank!

When asked what she loves most about being a banker, Jordan said, “I am able to support people with their financial needs in all stages of their lives. I love being able to witness children open up their first savings account to a newlywed couple being approved for financing on their first home.”

In her free time, you’ll find Jordan spending time with her husband, Zac, and their fur babies. They enjoy working on home improvement projects together.
