Meet Our Team

Jessup Standifer
Agency Owner

I’ve been with Standifer Insurance Group since 2000 and have worn many hats in the company. My tenure and experience has allowed me to not only understand the ins-and-outs of insurance, but also to service hundreds of families regarding their protection needs. I can help you protect the things that are important – your family, home, car, boat and more.

As a small business owner, I understand the importance of building a solid foundation for the future and developing long-lasting customer relationships. That’s why I’m committed to offering you the same level of service I’d expect from my own business dealings. When you leave my office, I hope you’ll feel confident, informed, assured and satisfied in your choices. The way you should feel.

Myrna Picogna
Director of Operations


Hello, My name is Myrna, I have been with The Standifer Insurance Group since 2011. I feel like I have been in the insurance world my entire life; because my father and brothers have all sold insurance at one time or another, so it was just a natural transition into my second career, once my 2 children graduated from High School. Even though I wear many hats here at the agency which I truly enjoy, one of my main goals stays the same: to help our customers make sure their insurance needs are met and they are completely satisfied with our services. I have 3 standard poodles: Abby, Bear, and Jackie – who I say are my, “4 legged children that don’t talk back” and their little side kick, Smudge our orange rescue cat. My favorite vacation place is anywhere at the beach and my dream is to travel to Thailand and Italy, hopefully within the next 5 years. If at any time you are not completely satisfied with our agency, please contact me directly so I can help you get the situation taken care of.Director of Operations

Chris Seeds
Customer Service Representative & Licensed Sales Agent


I am a father of 2 and a grandfather of 4. I have been in the Insurance field for at least 10 yrs. 7 of those were in management. I felt that joining the Standifer Group was a good decision because they are established in the community and I saw how they cared for their clients as if they are family. When something unexpected happens in life it’s good that someone is just a phone call away who cares.

When I’m not at work or playing with grandkids, my wife and I have our own ministry. We have been in ministry for at least 17 years helping others. This last year we started our own here locally. We do speaking and personal counseling.
