Jason originally earned his insurance licenses back in 2001. His career began in the mortgage industry and transitioned into insurance in 2010. Prior to becoming an Agent with American Family Insurance, Jason owned a wholesale mortgage bank, retail mortgage operation and a title insurance company. While the mortgage industry provided plenty of challenges that Jason enjoyed taking on, he found it to be too 'transactional'. The insurance industry provided him with a 'relational' opportunity to interact with his clients which he truly enjoys.
