From humble beginnings

Our Unique Story

February 3, 1962 is a day Jack Fessler will never forget. He was one month shy of his 21st birthday, working for a construction company in Naperville, Illinois. After his shift, he planned to buy an engagement ring for his high school sweetheart, Elaine. At the end of a long day, as he was closing a storm sewer pipe, a giant piece of clay the size of a refrigerator fell on him from above and broke Jack’s back in three places.

Several days later Jack awoke in the hospital and was told his life expectancy was about 10 more years and that he’d never walk again. “I don’t think I want to spend the rest of my life like this”, Jack recalls thinking. “This is life and here’s what’s happened to you,” Jack told himself. “You can sit back and dwell on it all you want, but that won’t change anything.”

Jack and Elaine were married 10 months later in December. The newlyweds then moved to Clearwater the following year. Jack always loved working outdoors, but once he became paralyzed he had to focus on what he could do. And he could certainly do more than glue seashells to a vase, one of his first jobs in Florida. “I never wanted charity,” Jack said. “I wanted opportunity.”

Jack then went to business school to learn bookkeeping and accounting. In 1964 he began working in the marketing department of a printing company where he successfully acquired many new accounts. A few years later it was time for a change and he took a position at a local insurance agency where he quickly discovered his passion for insurance sales.

In May of 1984 he opened The Fessler Agency, Inc.. Over 35 years later, with his business successful, Jack declares that he still loves to come to work. He enjoys mentoring his employees and continuing his relationships with his clients.

“Stay focused and have a plan,” Jack says.
“Don’t Ever Give Up!”
