Investment adviser Corey Mazza traveled an adventurous road before landing his role as a vice president for J.P. Morgan Private Bank in Westlake Village. 

Before taking the Wall Street route, the Harvard University All-American wide receiver made pit stops in Italy to play semi-pro football and, eventually, served a tour in Afghanistan, where he led an infantry unit as a Marine Corps officer. 

“I always wanted to serve in the military,” Mazza said. “And the time to do so was dwindling.” 

After a six-year military stint, Mazza earned an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin in investment management, and later earned his master’s degree in financial planning from California Lutheran University.
