Insurance can be confusing, let us do the research for you.
With the exception of his college years spent at the University of Arkansas, Mike is a lifelong native of Texarkana whose entire working life has been in the insurance industry. When he isn't working, Mike enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with his family.
If you asked what he likes best about working at YT&S, Mike would say he enjoys working with his partners and staff to help resolve problems for others.
Little known fact about Mike: While some people would consider him a little bit of a neat freak, Mike prefers the term "detail-oriented."
An alum of the second graduating class of Pleasant Grove High School, Gus has lived in Texarkana since June 1, 1984. After a stint at Stephen F. Austin University, he earned his BS in Business Management from ETSU (now TAMU-T) and has called Texarkana home ever since.
Gus spent 17 years in the banking industry before deciding to use his experience building client relationships to strike out on his own, and joined forces with friend Mike Young in 2008. A self-proclaimed "lover of lawn work," Gus enjoys spending time with his wife Julie, and daughters Holly and Whitney.
Little known fact about Gus: He once attended "ski school" where he learned to go off a ski jump and to slalom.
A University of Arkansas alum, Jon worked in banking before joining forces with Young & Thornton to form YTS. When asked what he likes best about the career he has built in insurance, Jon said he enjoys helping people take care of what's important to them.
Jon and wife Renee have been married for 11 years and have three children; son, Myers and twin daughters, Alex & Marian. In his spare time, you can find Jon in the woods or on the golf course. He also volunteers his time with CASA, where he currently serves as board president.
Little known fact about Jon: Although normally a lefty, don't let him fool you in a pool match - he shoots right-handed.
