Jay DePolo

Agency Owner

I have over 7 years experience in the insurance industry. I grew up in Knox County and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Finance from the University of Toledo.

I enjoy working in the community and helping individuals and families make sure they and their assets are protected.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my family, wife and 2 daughters, boating, and training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

I am currently a board member of K.iC.K.S. (Knox County Kids Succeed) as well as a volunteer coach for the The Killer Bees Wrestling Club and The Mount Vernon High School Wrestling team.

Lindsey DePolo

Operations Manager

After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science from The Ohio State University, I spent over 10 years in the Wellness industry. In May of 2018, I joined the DePolo & Associates team, making DePolo & Associates, Inc, Allstate Insurance a true, family business.

I joined the Wellness industry with a passion to help others.  As a member of the DePolo & Associates team, I can continue that passion.  I really enjoy working with our customers and getting to better know them so as to better understand the best ways to protect their assets from everyday risks. Helping others to have the peace of mind that they are protected is very gratifying.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. I enjoy running, boating and reading.  Interesting fact, I have participated in and completed several ultra marathons around the country.  These are 50k to 100 mile races that I hope to continue enjoying.

He enjoys working with our customers to provide the best solutions and coverages so much that he wanted to move into our sales department to provide that assistance to the next level.

Adam Furley

Sales Specialist

After being introduced into the world of insurance Adam was able to see an opportunity to lend a helping hand and provide protection for families and their loved ones. His passion and heart for making all lives better has been with him for as long as he can remember, but it all came to light while on his first mission trip in Nicaragua. Since then, he hopes to continue learning, helping and changing all he can. Adam is also an experienced musician and artist. When he is not saving the world, he can be found locked in a studio building his musical arsenal!
