We are a State Farm agency located in Portland, OR! I was born in Illinois but have long since called the great state of Oregon my home. I have a military background, which has shown me the value of being prepared. As a State Farm Agent, that is exactly what I am here to help others achieve — a better plan for the future. I began my insurance career in 1996 and have learned the ins and outs of all things insurance-related. Refining the process of providing personalized policies to my customers, my State Farm Portland, OR office offers auto insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and much more.

From individuals to families to small business owners, everyone who steps foot inside my agency can expect to receive extraordinary service. My team and I always make it a priority to get people the right insurance at the right coverage, maintain long-term relationships with policyholders, and allow customers to realize their dreams by being better prepared. Amidst all of life’s uncertainties, you can be certain my dedicated team and I will be there for you when you need us most.

My agency operates out of Portland and happily serves the locals as well as those residing in the surrounding cities of Vancouver, Beaverton, Gresham, Hillsboro, Milwaukie, and Lake Oswego. Licensed to service the entire state of Oregon, Washington, California, Nevada, and Idaho, my State Farm office offers:

● Auto Insurance

● Homeowners & Renters Insurance

● Health Insurance

● Life Insurance

● Small Business Insurance

● And more!

During my time as a State Farm Agent, I have earned many awards and accolades including Lifetime Presidents Club, Chairman's Circle, and Exotic Travel. I graduated from The University of Maryland and went on to earn my Master of Business and Science from Northern Illinois University. I am happily married to my wife who is also an insurance agent. Together, we have two wonderful children. On the weekends, I am likely to be found attending a Trailblazer game, reading a good book, or out on the golf course with my kids.

Feel free to stop by my State Farm Portland, OR office anytime. My team and I are looking forward to meeting you and are ready to begin discussing your insurance needs. Can’t wait to get started? Call our office or request a quote online now!

I began my journey here at Jared Dean's office early 2021. I am currently licensed in Property & Casualty Insurance. My pursuit of a Graduate Degree in Business has provided the groundwork for my growth in the office. Outside of the office you can find me with my family enjoying what Pac NW has to offer. Being outdoors hiking, sampling the fare from random food carts, fishing in the abundance of waterfront & waterways, and just taking in the Sunday drives exploring OR and WA.
