While working in his grandfathers insurance agency during time off from studying biology/business at the University of Oregon, Jason learned the values of what insurance means to a consumer. Jason also learned that skiing wasn’t going to pay the bills. When the opportunity presented itself to gain ownership of a struggling insurance agency, he jumped right in. After growing that agency 3 fold, he sold that agency to fund the start-up of Graybeal Insurance, an Independent Insurance agency. In 2010 Jason was able to acquire Ferranti-Leavitt Insurance in nearby Hermiston, and Ferranti-Graybeal was born. Jason holds and maintains the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) and Agribusiness and Farm Insurance Specialist (AFIS) designations. While not at work, Jason enjoys spending time with his wife, Abby, and his daughters, Emma and Miller. They enjoy traveling, snowmobiling, skiing, hunting, boating, horses, and just about anything else to do outdoors.
