Jester Insurance is dedicated to providing insurance to protect what Iowa values. From the beginning, we’ve been focused on being the best and have realized that insurance is not only about numbers and risk, but also about people and their passions. We want to provide people with peace of mind and give them the assurance that the things they care about are well protected.
For more than 100 years, Des Moines has been our home and we’ve seen it grow into a sprawling modern city. We’ve been at its side the whole way. Iowa is important to us and it’s why we take unique pride in protecting what makes it great. Jester Insurance is in the business of relationships and that means we trade in forward-thinking, new ideas but still do business with handshakes and goodwill.
Our staff are your neighbors, the schools we insure are where our kids learn together and the hospitals, municipal utilities and churches are where we live, work and become better together. At Jester, we insure what’s important to you because it’s just as important to us.
Jester Insurance is fully committed to the community, investing in its future with the same diligence in which we protect our clients. Our service goes beyond offering innovative insurance products. The Jester family donated the land for Jester Park, and we are supporters of the United Way of Central Iowa campaign. Employees are encouraged to hold positions on various boards and committees affecting the quality of life for our community. From Jester Park to numerous philanthropies, service organizations and boards, our company and staff act together to make our world a better place.
Founded by a Greene County farmer turned state legislator, Jester Insurance Services has remained a leader in property/casualty insurance for more than a century. That type of focus has a lot to do with keeping the business in the family for four generations, the longest continually family-operated insurance agency in the state. We have a long history and an even brighter future.
