Jon Tanner, J.D.
Executive Vice President
Jon is a lifelong Texan with more than 28 years of experience in the insurance industry. After graduating from Baylor University in 1991, Jon entered the insurance industry as an agent with the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies in 1992. He quickly gravitated toward commercial property and casualty insurance, and began specializing in the hospitality industry. In 1996, Jon expanded his agency’s focus into trucking and transportation, ultimately becoming the top producer with Farmers Insurance Group in the entire country for 3 consecutive years. In 1999, Jon decided to expand his knowledge and understanding of the complex coverage required by the trucking industry, and began work on his law degree. He left Farmers Insurance during this time for the independent agency world, and graduated with his Juris Doctor degree in 2003. During his 28-plus year career in the insurance industry, Jon has won numerous awards and served on the board of various companies and councils. He is a multi-year Commercial Round Table qualifier, and was a member of the Farmers Insurance President’s Council of Agents, which is the most prestigious award of the company. He has served as a Senior Vice President for one of the largest retail insurance agencies in the country, and as a wholesale broker for one of the largest wholesale brokers in the country. Jon combines a deep understanding and many years of experience to a number of fleet-driven industries, including: agribusiness; fuel distribution, wholesale and marketing; food and food products processing, wholesale and distribution; and trucking and transportation. Jon is happily married and has 3 children. His oldest daughter is also a Baylor graduate, who has obtained both her undergraduate and Master’s degrees from Baylor University. His son attended Texas Tech University and now works for Park Place Mercedes in Dallas, and his youngest daughter is an avid golfer who currently attends Baylor University and is a member of the Baylor Chamber of Commerce. Needless to say, Jon is a rabid fan of the Baylor Bears, and can be sighted in Waco throughout the year.
