Our Team

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 11 grand-kids.  What a treat.
