Jackson Sumner & Associates (JSA), a family owned and operated company, is an Excess and Specialty Lines Broker that began in 1981 in Boone, North Carolina. Current President, Wayne Sumner, started JSA with just 1 other employee and focused on Police Professional in North Carolina. Today the company has grown to over 80 employees and has expanded to write in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee and Maryland. JSA currently has offices located in Boone, Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Richmond & Myrtle Beach. JSA offers a wide range of products including property, casualty, automobile, garage, professional and personal lines. JSA is committed to quality service for our brokers and strong underwriting for our companies. Not only does our advanced technology set us apart from our competitors, so do our people – we have some of the best in the industry!

Our Mission Statement

We respect and care for all human connections we make, company or agent, friend or stranger. No account is too small, and no relationship is too insignificant. We have a passion for insurance education, teaching, and innovation. We endure because we are not stopped by challenges, but guided by them.  We commit to do our best, to take our work seriously, and to never stop having fun.

Headline from the First Issue of The Marketeer

The philosophy on which JSA was built in 1981, “We Are in Business Because of You” still guides everything we do today.

Thank you for letting us be in business.
