Jim is widely regarded as “the Medicare guru”. His extensive experience in the health insurance industry has given Jim the depth of knowledge to find simple answers to complex problems, whether it is for individuals or businesses.
Jim’s insurance career began in 1992 as an Account Executive with BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina. He worked extensively with small and medium size groups as well as large groups with more than 250 employees and multi-state locations. In 1996 he formed his own benefits agency, Commonwealth Benefits, LLC. which transitioned into IBD Benefits & Risk Management Group, Inc.
Since joining Jones Insurance in 2016 as a partner, Jim continues to be a valued advisor on Life Insurance, Disability Income, Group and Individual Medical, Medicare Supplement, Dental, and Vision, as well as business insurance and Workers Compensation.
In high school Jim played football and wrestled, but baseball is the one sport that really stuck. He coached Little League when his son played thirteen years ago and can’t seem to quit. That selfless investment of time paid dividends when Jim’s son, Josh, got a baseball scholarship to Radford University in Virginia. Jim has “matured” to the point that he no longer runs the bases but golf, hunting, and camping keep him outdoors and active. Jim and his wife Tiffany reside in Johnston County with their two children.
