Brian Purtle

I’ve been an insurance agent for 29 years… and counting.

What most excites me about my job is being able to insure generations of families from grand-parents, to their children and now their grandchildren. My tenure and experience has allowed me to not only understand the ins-and-outs of insurance, but also to service hundreds of families regarding their protection needs. I can help you protect the things that are important – your family, home, car, boat and more.

As a small business owner, I understand the importance of building a solid foundation for the future and developing long-lasting customer relationships. That’s why I’m committed to offering customers the same level of service I’d expect from my own business dealings. When you leave my office, I hope you’ll feel confident, informed and satisfied in your choices. The way you should feel.

Personally, I love to travel and visit my kids who are in college. Although my hobbies are work and more work, I love jazz music, working in the yard, going to movies, good wine, and college football. I also do a little oil painting in my spare time.

I’m a member of St. James episcopal church on their financial board and the Texarkana Noon Lions Club and have donated and gotten involved with Texarkana Symphony, Susan G Komen race for the Cure and lot of others.

Jessica Bush Caskey

Jessica started her insurance career at the age of 19. She is licensed in property and casualty insurance in Texas and Arkansas.

She grew up in the small town of Redwater where she attended school until the 10th grade and then transferred to Texas High. Jessica then attended college at Texarkana College and also took classes for real estate. Shortly after, she realized her calling and love for insurance.

Jessica loves meeting new people and gaining a relationship with her customers. She treats her customers the way she would want someone else to treat her own family.

When not working, Jessica is all about her family time. Her son is the light of her world. They enjoy to go fishing, bowling, putt putt or watching a good movie.

Something that people might not know about Jessica is that both herself and her husband used to race dirt track cars and that is something they miss doing as a family.

Ever since Jessica’s grandmother passed away due to breast cancer, she has become very passionate about this cause.

April Atkinson

I have been working in insurance for 5 years. I have been with Brian since June 2018. The most exciting thing about working for Allstate is developing personal relationships with the customers.

I was raised in Maud, TX. Never lived outside of Bowie County! I attended Texarkana College. I enjoy spending time with my daughter. I love being at the lake and spending time with friends and family.

A guilty pleasure I have is making my own home décor.
