Our agency understands how important family is. I am married to my wonderful wife, Carrie, and we've been together happily since June 2000. Our family is made complete with four amazing kids - Ella, Gabe, Adler, and Vale - and our lovable KavaPoo companion, Archie. I find joy in an active lifestyle and am an avid cyclist and runner. Since August 2003, we have proudly called Bloomington/Normal our home.

My educational background includes a B.S. from Southern Illinois University and an M.B.A. from Illinois State University. From 1999 to 2003, I served as a Quartermaster Officer in the U.S. Army. In addition to my role as a State Farm Insurance Agent, I actively contribute to our community as a member of the Milestones Early Learning Center, the Bloomington Normal Sunrise Rotary Club, and the McLean County Chamber of Commerce. I'm also passionate about coaching youth soccer with PCSL.

Whether we're there for you and your loved ones at the scene of an accident or simply saying hello in the grocery store, we're dedicated to being available to you day and night. As your agent and neighbor, we are determined to listen to your concerns and address them adequately.

When I'm not out in the community, you'll likely find me enjoying some RV glamping, coaching youth soccer, or exploring the scenic beauty of our area on my bike. The tranquility provides the perfect backdrop for quality time and relaxation with my family and friends.

Jessica Colglazier

I first started working for Axel Jimenez State Farm Insurance in April 2020. I love that there is always something new to learn and things to do here in the office. I was born and raised in the Bloomington-Normal area. I have a 6-year-old daughter, a rooster, a dog, and a cat. In my free time, I enjoy reading and watching football games, but of course, spending time with my family is my favorite activity. An interesting fact about me is that I never learned how to swim and I love rollerblading! I am happy to be working alongside professionally licensed individuals and can assist with lines of business like Auto, Home, and Life Insurance just to name a few.
