Local Allstate Agency: Meet J Michael Insurance LLC

My late husband, Jason, founded this agency in 2007. He passed away unexpectedly in September 2014. I then made the decision to continue his work, as I learned first-hand how important it is for people to be prepared for life’s uncertainties. He loved helping people in the community, and I’m proud to continue his legacy. We can help you with auto, home, life motorcycle, ATV and boat insurance.

My staff and I take the time to volunteer, including a commitment to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Balloon Classic, which Jason had volunteered for many years prior. One of our staff members, Nick, volunteered there in 2019 for the Balloon Classic and Gold Jacket committees. We’re also a drop-off point for Stark County Toys for Tots each holiday season, have conducted an X the TXT® program at Hoover High School and helped secure an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant for the YMCA of Central Stark County. I volunteer with the North Canton YMCA and the Stark County Humane Society.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and cheering on my favorite team – the Cleveland Browns.

My original career path was in health care, and I see similarities between that work and what we do here at the agency. Helping people make sound decisions for their well-being is at the heart of it all, whether they are protecting their assets or their health.

Please stop by our agency on Cleveland Avenue in North Canton, meet my team and learn how we can help with what matters most to you.

Local events & news

Performing International Mission Work

Joelie Leggett, a Customer Care Professional at our agency, recently returned from a 10-day mission trip with her church to help those in Uganda, Africa. Beginning on June 9, Joelie helped provide preliminary eye exams to more than 400 children in school and took photos to generate awareness and interest of sponsorship to help them gather necessities they are lacking.

Volunteering at Canton Blues Festival

Our agency proudly showed support for the 2019 Canton Blues Fest – one of the big events in the area. Held in downtown Canton, businesses and residents came together to enjoy music, drinks, food and good times. We volunteered at one of the trucks that served beverages to thirsty attendees. We’d like to thank the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce for putting this fun event together and letting us be part of it.

Keep Young Ohio Drivers Safe at Night

Help your young driver learn the rules of the road, including those around late-night driving. Ohio restricts the hours a graduated driver license (GDL) holder can be on the road to help reduce crashes. These restrictions can begin as early as midnight and are one way to help inexperienced drivers. My agency offers another through Drivewise®, which rewards drivers for safe driving, including limited late-night trips. We know Good Driving Starts Young. Contact me today to learn more!

Supporting Blessings in a Backpack

I proudly volunteered with other Allstate agency owners to support Blessings in a Backpack, which aims to provide meals on the weekends for schoolchildren across the country. Together, we packed food for 1,500 Akron children. I’m excited to be among thousands of Allstate volunteers across the country caring for their communities by supporting important causes.

Hosting Operation Kidsafe June 2

We believe in making a difference in our community, and our team is excited to host a Child Safety Day with Operation Kidsafe on Saturday, June 2. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., visit my agency at 1204 N. Main St. in North Canton. Operation Kidsafe will provide free fingerprints and a photo of your child, and you also may enjoy activities while learning more about how to protect your family. Food is available for purchase from food trucks on site. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
