We have enjoyed a terrific past, a gratifying present, and a bright future serving the risk management needs of our loyal clients.
After graduating from The University of Dayton in 1963, Bob started selling life insurance for Aetna.
Bob saw great success selling life insurance and wanted to help his clients with their property and casualty insurance needs as well.
In 1972, Bob opened Robert K. Jones Insurance Agency in the Oakwood business district.
As an independent insurance agency, Bob represented not only Aetna but added Cincinnati Insurance in 1978 and Progressive Insurance in the early 1980s. Bob’s clientele was growing to the point that he needed to add a second employee.
In 1986, Bob’s oldest son, Kevin, joined the agency selling all lines of insurance and building his clientele.
Bob’s vision for the future included a need to move to a larger office, so he and other local businesses built the Patterson Woods Condominium complex on Patterson Road in Oakwood.
In 1989, when the new offices were completed, Robert K. Jones Insurance Agency moved to 432 Patterson Road. At this time, a third employee was added to better serve Bob and Kevin’s clients.
In 1990, Bob’s oldest daughter, Colleen, joined the agency to handle the Accounting and Finances. In 1997, Colleen left to raise her children.
As the agency continued to grow, Bob recognized, with a clear vision, the need to add a fourth employee to continue to serve the agency’s client needs.
Having outgrown a second office, Robert K. Jones Insurance Agency was once again on the move to a larger location. In 1998, Bob, Kevin, three client service reps, an agency accountant, and a receptionist transitioned to their current office located at 3085 Woodman Drive in Kettering.
In 1999, Bob & Kevin hired Dan Bitler as an intern from Wright State University to develop the agency’s automation system. With the advent of automation and the agency’s continued growth, Dan became an important part of Robert K. Jones Insurance. Upon graduation in 2001, Dan left the agency only to return in 2004. Dan is active in selling, managing the staff, leading individual and group medical, and overseeing automation. With continued growth over the years and adding two more employees, the agency was poised to meet client needs!
Bob’s daughter Colleen returned in 2011 to assume the accounting duties once again.
In 2013, Robert K. Jones Insurance Agency celebrated 50 years in business! Bob built a multi-million dollar agency with the help from Kevin, Dan and others.
In 2014, Robert K. Jones Insurance Agency was ranked 5th largest local Independent Insurance Agency in the Miami Valley.
Unfortunately, Bob passed away suddenly in the spring of 2014. Ironically, he was meeting with a client providing his dependable counsel right until the end. Today, the agency strives to continue living up to Bob’s service and relationship standards.
Dan Bitler and Colleen Greer joined Jones Insurance Agency as partners along with Kevin Jones in 2015.
