Jon “fell” into the insurance business when, while still a student at UCONN, he walked into a local State Farm® agency looking for experience in a sales position. There, he discovered a passion for helping people realize their dreams, whether it was insuring their first home, car, life or start-up business. During his time at the agency, he grew a large client base and network that would eventually follow him everywhere he went, from his time with Allstate® to his last sales role at Nationwide®.
After years of experience in the captive and more limited side of the industry, Jon came to the realization that going independent would be the best move towards providing a higher level of service to his base. Despite many barriers to entry, Jon was determined to build something that would revolutionize the independent agency model. Thus, Zurita Insurance Group was formed, from scratch, in 2012. Since then, the company has become one of the fastest growing agencies in the state, backed by an unparalleled reputation as the most trusted source for all your insurance needs.
In 2018, Jon was invited to be a part of the Progressive Insurance® Agency Council: A selected group of independent agents and brokers from around the country formed to share insights about industry trends and provide feedback on the company’s business strategies. His agency has also been recognized as part of the Smart Choice® Leadership Agent Club. Currently licensed in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Virginia, the company plans on expanding their services throughout the East Coast.
Outside of the office, Jon does his best to live an active lifestyle. He is also a foodie at heart, which is a great combination! If not at the gym or trying out a new restaurant, Jon enjoys watching sports and spending time with friends and family.
