Jason G. Grams, CIC
Owner & General Manager
In the Autumn of 2010, I founded Bishop White Insurance & Financial Services, Inc., as a full-service insurance agency. I have over 25 years of experience in the industry, I am a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), and I have a Finance degree from Central Michigan University. I'm passionate about providing my clients with an unsurpassed service experience, and the part of my job I love the most is helping people understand their own personal, business, and farm insurance policies.
Growing up in Michigan, I never thought I would find my way to Iowa. But in 2004 I fell in love with the state, and today my roots are firmly planted in the community of metropolitan Des Moines. My wife Kelli and I have two sons, Dakota and Keaton. We enjoy time with family, neighbors, and friends, Summer vacations at Lake Michigan, and cheering on our boys' sports teams.
My business is a member of the Des Moines Chamber of Commerce, and I served as board chair for the Chamber's LEAP program (Leadership Education and Advancement Pipeline) in 2017 and 2018. Philanthropy is an important part of who I am, and in addition to LEAP I have served the Youth Emergency Services Shelter (YESS), the World Food Prize, The Clive Historical Society, and Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. I also volunteer as a coach for youth baseball and soccer.
Thank you for visiting my site and I look forward to serving you as well!
Business & Marketing Associate
When I started attending Drake University in the Fall of 2017, I had no idea my life was going to change as much as it did… in the best way! I quickly fell in love with Des Moines and all of the amazing things it had to offer (Smokey Row, anyone?). In my first year of college, I became involved in my sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and have held a position on Chapter Council ever since. I love to be part of the behind the scenes work that makes an organization function as flawlessly as possible.
When I’m not on campus, I love visiting my family back home in central Illinois. We enjoy shopping, working out, and watching movies on Netflix every Saturday night. I also help out at my high school job at a local popcorn and candy shop whenever I’m on break from school. You’re probably wondering if I’m allowed to eat our product while working and the answer is yes… and I probably eat too much of it!
I’m passionate about politics and community involvement. Last semester, I joined Drake’s Non-Profit Consulting Group and was given the task to lead a team to redesign Jewels Academy’s website and marketing plan. I was recently given the honor of being president of the consulting group for the 2020-2021 school year. I’m so excited to join the Bishop White team and help this amazing company reach its full potential!
