James Choi defines success as achieving tranquility in an otherwise hectic world by serving his community through church activities and lending a helping hand to anyone in need.

Growing up in an Adventist family with a Minister father, James spent his childhood moving from place to place, helping to build churches and doing charity work around the country. Many of the individuals he met along the way were not educated on financial literacy and did not have access to information about financial security. As a result of his upbringing, helping people has always resonated with James. Rather than follow the footsteps of his father and become a Minister, James decided to make an impact in a different way through his work at Northwestern Mutual.

James enjoys spending time with his family, travelling, and going on “staycations.” James is passionate about education and often promotes financial education and awareness by teaching classes in his sons' high school, working with the faculty, and making himself accessible to alumni and families of the students.

In his free time, James loves to play recreational basketball and golf. He is an avid sports fan -- and, thanks to a steady period living in Illinois, roots for all the great Chicago teams.
