Chris Schmidt
Chris Schmidt Agency Owner

Chris and his wife, Sheree, have lived in the area since 2007. In 2015, they bought a new home and a new insurance policy. Shortly after their purchase, they went out of town to celebrate their new home, along with their wedding anniversary.

When they returned, they found in the stack of mail that greets us all after a week away, a notice from their insurance company their policy had been canceled on the day they left town on vacation. They didn’t receive any notification from their agent or from the company, aside from a piece of U.S. Mail that was now weeks old.

Thankfully nothing happened in that period of time, but that didn’t stop the Schmidts from asking “what if?”

“It was that day I knew I would become involved in insurance,” Chris said. “And I vowed my customers would always know what was going on, so they would never have to endure an experience of confusion and uncertainty like we had.”

Chris and his wife are involved with various local organizations, including the Jefferson Performing Arts Society and St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a non-profit committed to conquering childhood cancers. They are members of Munholland United Methodist Church and loyal Saints and LSU fans.

Chris understands what peace of mind is—and what it isn’t. For your peace of mind, give him a call.
