Jeremy Cozad

Jeremy entered into the insurance industry in 2005; following the footsteps of his Mother who has worked in the industry for over 30 years. His love of working with people and finding solutions to problems first peaked his interest at a young age. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Kansas State University and Letourneau University, Jeremy entered the industry he knew he was always destined for. Over the last 10 years, Jeremy worked for Hilb Rogal and Hobbs where he developed his insurance knowledge placing insurance for commercial accounts ranging from small business owners to national and international accounts. HRH was later acquired in 2008 by the 3rd largest insurance broker in the world, Willis. Jeremy continued working for Willis until finally realizing his lifelong dream of purchasing his own agency early in 2014. Today, he focuses on all lines of insurance that the agency offers. His favorite part of the day is visiting with his team and clients that walk through the door.

When not procuring insurance, Jeremy enjoys spending time with his wife, Claire, and their young daughters Lucy and Rosie. Cooking, working on projects around the house, and enjoying time with friends and family are also very important. He is actively involved in the community by serving as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the East Texas Crisis Center, Board Member for Ubank which is a large community bank, as well as attending Marvin Methodist Church in Tyler. With any free time, Jeremy is continually thinking of ways to improve the agency for his clients and make it the best place to work with his team.

Jasiee spent her childhood playing sports with friends and sharing free treats from her grandparent’s snow cone shop in the East Texas Sun. She graduated from Van High School and attended SFA before heading back to her roots to start her banking career.
When Jasiee is not working at Cozad, you can find her serving the Lindale community at the local BBQ joint, Brisket Love. Enjoying the wonderful company of her friends and family somewhere on a patio. Or playing fetch with her goofy Dalmatian Pongo.
