John Bartholemew Rotherham
1950 - 1998
Grandpa Jack Rotherham was the pioneer that started generations of accountants thereafter, at Rotherham & Rotherham & Co. His wealth of knowledge and inviting charisma played a central role in running an accounting firm. The practice is honored by clients of his that continue to come in, three or more decades later.
Jack started doing accounting work while serving in the United States Army. Towards the end of the second World War, Jack left military service. With several mouths to feed, Jack decided to try his hand in public accounting. Year after year growing his client base, Jack found himself to be very successful in building strong relationships and friendships for years to come.
John Dean Rotherham
1972 - Present
Jack Rotherham is the patriarch that laid the foundation for what Rotherham & Rotherham & Co. is today. For well over 40 years, Jack has been the backbone of Rotherham & Rotherham & Co. To the majority of clients, if not all, Jack became not just their "tax guy", but a true friend indeed.
As a solider in the United States Navy, and after serving time in the Vietnam War, Jack came home with a entrepreneurial fire in his stomach. Jack went from being a salesman, to earning his nursing home administrators license, and came to be one of the organizational leaders of almost ten nursing homes in central Illinois. Years after, he decided to go into the accounting field. After securing his degrees, he decided to office with his father, and escalate the practice to what it is today.
Linda S. Rotherham

As a true pillar of the organization, Linda laid the groundwork for many of the core values that Rotherham & Rotherham & Co. stands for to this very day. With her vast attention to detail and determination, Linda has proven to be an irreplaceable asset to the firm.
At a very young age, Linda became a unique and devoted partner to her husband Jack. From lighting up the office with her smile, to being the voice of reason and fairness, Linda's presence and position in the company has set standards that will last until the end of time.
Jack & Linda Rotherham are the illustration of a true team. Building and maintaining a small business is no easy feat, and takes immense courage and sacrifice, all the while raising five children.
Their teamwork, strength, and devotion is deeply rooted in how relationships with our clients are maintained this very day. Everlasting partnerships where the central focus is for the team. All for one, & one for all. Through thick and thin, the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, at Rotherham & Rotherham & Co. our core objective is the success and financial well being of you and your family.
