Jim Ming: Partner/Agent
I started in the insurance business is 1982 selling Life Insurance, and then started selling health insurance as I could see a need for that type of insurance. I partnered with Dee Forshee in 2007 and we formed Ming Senior Service. We focus on Medicare and have grown to a leading agency in that market. I have a love of fishing, which I got naturally from my dad Emmet and we fished every minute we could. My other passions are my 10, soon to be 11, grand-kids. What a treat.
