Jeff is a native of Jason, North Carolina in Greene County where he first graduated from Greene Central High School and then North Carolina State University. He started his professional life teaching high school. After those years he spent another 7 seven years in manufacturing before entering the industrial and construction services industry. Jeff has been involved in insurance as a licensed agent since 2014. Together with his wife Jane, he managed an insurance agency of their own prior to joining Eastern Carolina Insurance in March 2019. As with many, he enjoys his position because he is able to help customers select the right insurance to protect those things that matter most. Superior customer service has always been his top priority no matter what industry he happens to be in. Jeff has been married to fellow account manager Jane Suggs for 25 years. The two have two children: Jeffrey, a 24-year-old, and Carole, a 20-year-old. The couple lives in Seven Springs, NC, and when not working alongside his bride, Jeff loves grilling out, spending time walking his property, and occasionally turning a wrench or two on his vehicles.
