  • I'm a second generation State Farm Agent and started working with my Dad in 1981. In 1983 I opened my own State Farm Agency. The office has been in the same location on Milwaukee and Sunnyside in Jefferson Park for over 40 years. I was born in Chicago and grew up in Park Ridge. I 'm a proud graduate of Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. I have been happily married to my wonderful wife Terri since 1974. We have been blessed with a son and two beautiful daughters. In my free time, I enjoy playing with my two golden retrievers. I also love camping and fishing with family and friends. I enjoy relaxing on the lake on my pontoon boat during the summer months. I have a true passion for cars; I started working on cars when I was 14 years old and was an auto mechanic when I was in high school.

I am blessed to have a great team working with me, they make me look good! My team has over 70 years of combined experience working in the insurance industry and are here to help understand our neighbors’ needs. We provide free quotes in Illinois for Home/Auto, Condo, Renters, Life and Small Business/Commercial Insurance. Our team looks forward to building relationships with you and your family. We are happy to provide you exceptional service you deserve at the Jim Mays Agency.
