Jason Eberhart is excited about owning and operating his own State Farm Insurance office in Jersey Shore.

“I love the area,” he said. “I want to stay in the area.”

Eberhart officially took over the State Farm office at 265 High St. on July 1. He sells flood, auto, home owners, renters, life and disability insurance. Having grown up in Jersey Shore, he’s eager to get his business out there before the community.

“I’m local. I know the area,” he said. “I know the people.”

Having never worked in the insurance industry, Eberhart sees it as a new path for him. To prepare, he went through the required State Farm training and licensing process.

He likes being affiliated with State Farm, which has more than 18,000 local agents across the nation.

“State Farm is a great company to work for,” he said. “I enjoy working with people and helping people. I want to provide amazing customer service.”

He’ll operate the business with three employees, but sees the office growing.

He feels he presently has a “great team in place” and likes his business location at the west end of the community.

The conveniently located office has off-street parking.

Office hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
