Wedgwood’s longest-time, continuous worker is Liz Jones of Adams Insurance. Liz started out in the office with a summer job in 1977 after attending community college. Now, 37 years later, Liz is co-owner of Adams Insurance with Ken Jenson.
Since its founding in 1949 by original owner Walt Adams, Adams Insurance has been in the same location at 8613 35th Ave NE. Currently Adams Insurance’s neighbors in the building are Tom Simon, CPA; Cafe Javasti; Creative Images Hair Salon; and Wedgwood Laundromat. The cluster of small, locally-owned shops enhances the friendly neighborhood atmosphere of Wedgwood. Because of their easily-accessed location, Adams Insurance gets many “walk-in” customers who stop by to ask for insurance info.
The most important thing to know about Adams Insurance is that it is an independent agency which matches clients with coverage from the appropriate company/carrier. Adams Insurance can write policies tailored to the needs of car, property, rental and life insurance. Liz Jones estimates that about 50% of her business is in life insurance for young families. Co-owner Ken Jenson works with annuities, an investment product often purchased by those age 55+ who are doing retirement planning.
