Jerry Baird, the agency founder, started in the insurance business in 1967 after working in agriculture as a Bookeeper/Controller for a number of prominent farming operations in the Central San Joaquin Valley and Northern California areas. In 1973, Jerry went on his own and established the Jerry Baird Agency in 1990. Besides the business, Jerry enjoys spending time with his wife Linda, family and friends. His hobbies include auto racing, boating and traveling.
In March of 1986 after serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, Jace Baird joined his father in business and brought with him a strong commitment to high standards and ethics that Jerry had instilled in him over the years. Now a partner in the agency, Jace is dedicated to the needs of the customers, a lot of whom have become good friends. When not at the office, Jace likes to spend time with his wife Lisa and their three sons; Ross, Austin and Conner.
