Williams Insurance Agency was started back in the 1920's by a Lady named Elizabeth Brewer Gray. In the 1970's after several owners the agency became the McGill Agency. I Jeff Willams purchased the agency from McGill in 1994 and renamed it The Williams Insurance agency with an office in Ovid, NY. In 1999 I then purchased what was known as the Stevenson's Trumansburg Agency located on Congress St. in Trumansburg.

In April of 2000 I purchased the building in Jacksonville which we are now located in. In 2009 I consolidated the Ovid office and the Jacksonville office at the 1850 Trumansburg road location and started transferring ownership to Michelle Vogtman. In 2011 Michelle and I Incorporated the agency and it is now know as the Jacksonville Insurance Agency Inc. DBA Williams Insurance Agency. Michelle is the CEO and I am the CFO; we along with Mark Martinez are the producers for the agency. Michelle and I make the day to day business decisions.

I am in the process of retiring although I'm not sure when it will be complete. I have 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 for over ten years first with State Farm and then in our agency, she is pursuing several professionl designations as well as raising 3 children. Mark works as a producer in the agency as time permits as he has a full time position with The Blue Buffalo dog food company, he has 3 years experience and hopefully will become full time in the future.
