About Ron Jackson Insurance Agency
Ron Jackson Insurance is an independent insurance agency in Kalamazoo and Plainwell, Michigan. We specialize in personal service for all types of insurance including car, home, umbrella, life, health, and much more. Owned and operated by Ron Jackson and his family for 50 years, we’ve built our reputation on personal service, quality coverage, and competitive prices for just about any type of insurance.
The agency was founded in 1962 by Ron Jackson after his career in professional baseball with the Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox organizations.
Ron began his agency providing insurance in Michigan representing The Travelers Insurance Company from his home. After a few short years, the fast growing business moved from Ron’s Parchment area home to a larger office in Kalamazoo.
Since that time, the insurance agency has continued to grow. In 1977, Mark Jackson, Ron’s son, joined the office after graduation from Kalamazoo College and working as a supervisor at Brown Company. Mark is currently the president of the agency.
One of Ron’s daughters is also involved in the business. Jennifer Jackson first joined the agency upon graduation from University of Michigan in 1992. She has balanced work with family by working part time. Currently, she is the office and human relations manager.
The success and professionalism Ron established remains today. The third generation of family recently committed to upholding these traditions. Ron’s grandson, (Mark’s son), Adam Jackson, joined the agency in 2011. He graduated from Davenport University in 2008 with a major in marketing. He worked as a personal banker for Huntington Bank for two years.
Ron Jackson Insurance maintains two locations; one in Plainwell, MI and the original in Kalamazoo, MI.
