Williams Insurance Agency was started back in the 1920's by a woman named Elizabeth Brewer Gray. In the 1970's after several owners the agency became the McGill Agency. Jeff Williams purchased the agency from McGill in 1994 and renamed it The Williams Insurance agency with an office in Ovid, NY. In 1999 he then purchased what was known as the Stevenson's Trumansburg Agency located on Congress St. in Trumansburg.
In April of 2000 Jeff purchased the building in Jacksonville which we are now located in. In 2008 Michelle Vogtman (Jeff’s daughter) became a partner in the agency and began some major reorganization. First, we consolidated the Ovid office and the Jacksonville office at the 1850 Trumansburg Road location and started the process of transferring ownership to Michelle. In 2011 Michelle and Jeff made the decision to incorporate the agency and it is now known as the Jacksonville Insurance Agency Inc. DBA Williams Insurance Agency.
After some health concerns, Jeff is in the process of retiring although we are not sure when it will be complete. Jeff has been in the Insurance Industry since 1963 in one capacity or another. Married in 1972 with two children Michelle Vogtman (Damien) and Jennifer Martinez (Mark) and we have a total of 5 grandchildren.
Michelle has been in the Insurance Industry since 1999 at first with State Farm and then in our agency, she holds the CISR (Certified Insurance Services Representative) professional designation as well as raising 3 children.
