Joe is an insurance agent at Cordova Agency in our Merrill location. He grew up in Tomahawk and later joined the US Army Reserve and attended college at UWSP to earn a degree in Paper Science. School was cut short due to being called to active duty service resulting in spending over a year in Iraq. Since then, he has continued his military duty in mostly a reserve status and will reach the milestone of 20 years of service in early 2021.
Joe joined Cordova Agency in 2016 as an insurance agent and has been helping clients ranging from life insurance to homeowner’s insurance to multi-million dollar business insurance protection. Before joining Cordova Agency, he was a carpentry foreman at VanStydonk Construction for 13 years. His wide-ranging experience and extensive application of risk management allow him to find, explain, and apply coverages to his business and individual clients. Joe has graduated from the highly accredited Polestar – Producer Development Program and has most recently attained the professional designation of Certified Insurance Service Representative CISR.
Outside of work, Joe is actively involved in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation as the chapter chairman, the Headwaters Builders Association as President, and volunteers for church and school activities for his children.
Joe currently resides in Tomahawk with his wife Hilary, their children Willow and Quinn, and dog Scout, where they enjoy boating, traveling, hunting, and fishing.
