Jacob Burks, new businessman in Jewell
Third generation joins Citizens State Agency team
June 9, 2022
Jacob Burks has joined his father, Josh Burks, at the Citizens State Agency of Jewell. A third-generation employee, Jacob is a recent graduate of Cloud County Community College with an associate's degree in business. He commented, "I wanted to move back to my hometown and give back to the community."
One strand of the agency's story began in 1981, more than 40 years ago, as the Burks Agency in the back room of the Burks Grocery in Randall. Both the grocery store and insurance business were owned by Max and Annette Baxa Burks. Max and Annette are the grandparents of Jacob Burks.
