committed to service


Our agency was started by a local educator. After years of helping family and friends sort through their retirement options, Jack Danielson decided it was time to take a break from coaching, get fully licensed, and begin his second career, officially. 

“I'm truly blessed to have this opportunity to represent The Horace Mann Companies and to serve the insurance and retirement planning needs of my colleagues. It gives me great pleasure to know I can make a difference for so many who tirelessly work to educate our next generation.

I will meet at your convenience at my office, or your home or school site. I'm committed to providing you lifelong financial well-being through personalized service, advice and a full range of tailored insurance and financial products.”

After seven years of business, Jack's son, Blake Danielson, has taken over administrative operations of the business and now serves as managing agent and owner. Blake, along with our dedicated team, will continue to provide our clients and the community with superior service and specialty products.
