As a life-long native of Sterling, CO, Rick Jackson was raised on the family farm. His parents, Perry and Donna Jackson taught him the true meaning of “work ethic and honesty”.
Rick has been married to his wife, Mikki, for 46 years. They have two grown children, Cory Jackson and wife Meghan and Raegen Alvarado and husband Joe. Each have blessed them with two girls and a boy. The six grandkids ranging in age from 7-17, are the pride of their lives! When not at one of the grandkid’s numerous softball, basketball, volleyball, or football games, he enjoys snowmobiling with friends and family along with attending Viper Car Club events.
Rick has been an active member of the community serving on bank boards, NJC College Foundation and local conservation boards and service organizations.
With 40 plus years in the insurance industry, he prides himself in understanding the community and the protection people want and need.
Born and raised in Sterling, Colorado, Cory Jackson grew up on his family’s farm and ranch. Cory studied Business at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, CO before attending Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, OK. Following in his grandfather and father’s footsteps, Cory began a life in insurance wanting to help people understand their insurance products. Considering himself an “insurance crusader” rather than a salesman is what has driven him to provide top level service for over 20 years.
Cory is an active member of the community and facilitates a 10-week parenting class at the local Family Resource Center for fathers each year, as well as being an active member of the church. His passion is his family and spending as much time as he can with his wife and 3 children. Whether it is helping them with 4-H animals, homework, or playing catch, family is his nucleus.

Tara is a 3rd generation resident of Sterling and can’t imagine raising her family anywhere else. She received an AA in Criminal Justice in 2008 and has since used her love of education to further develop her passion for insurance. Tara’s greatest passion in life is her family.
