Having been active in the first Ford dealership, Albert began financing autos and soon ventured into the insurance business. William S Jenks, Jr. joined as a partner in January 1947. In May of 1970 William (Bill) S. Jenks, III, son of William Jenks, Jr. joined the agency after graduating from Westminster College and serving in the United States Military. Bill took over as owner of the agency following his father’s retirement, and during his time with the agency. Bill was deeply involved in the community and served as Mayor of the City of Rolla. Bill Retired in September of 2017.
