JULY is National GRILLING Month, National PICNIC Month, National WATERMELON Month, National ICE CREAM Month and National HORSERADISH Month. You get the idea – gather your friends and family and fire up the grill! Plan fun games and play some music. While you’re at it, you can try new recipes as you enjoy the outdoors.

The Jesse Johnson State Farm office is proud to serve the greater Forest Lake area with Insurance and Financial Services. I am a third generation State Farm Agent and opened my office in 2002. It is our mission to be the premier insurance and financial services provider in our community. Our team takes tremendous pride in our active role in the Forest Lake area and are dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve. In addition, we are proud to compete at a high level among our peers, qualifying for Chairman's, SVP, and Ambassador Travel. I presently serve on the Forest Lake YMCA Community Board, am a member of the Rotary Club and past president, and also a past Forest Lake Chamber of Commerce Board Member. We support all of our local PTO's and booster club programs as the success of those programs are critical to the success of our community.

My wife and I have three children in the Forest Lake Area Schools and as a family we enjoy the outdoors, especially camping, hunting, and fishing.

I am committed to doing all that I can as business owner to deliver on the promises we make to our policyholders, provide them the service they very much deserve, and making the Forest Lake area better for our families and businesses. If you are looking for quotes on your auto, home, life, or business insurance, we would love the opportunity to help.
