Starting in 1979 as an agent with Texas Farm Bureau, Stoney Jackson built a distinguished career in the insurance industry. His rapid rise saw him become Agency Manager for Texas Farm Bureau by 1981. Recognizing a need to serve the specific needs of agricultural clients, he established Stoney Jackson & Associates in 1984. This provided the best avenue to cater to farmers and agribusinesses, offering a comprehensive suite of insurance products.

Expertise in commercial insurance led him to Producers Exchange Insurance Agency in 1993, where he assumed the role of Commercial Account Manager. Following the merger that created Triangle Insurance Company in 1995, he transitioned to Director of Employee Benefits in 1999.

An entrepreneurial spirit ever-present, he founded Texas Ag Coop Trust (TACT) in 2001. This member-owned health plan secured initial funding and received its Certificate of Authority in 2002. Demonstrating unwavering dedication, he fully committed himself to TACT's growth in 2005 by resigning from Triangle Insurance Co. and becoming Executive Director.

Recognizing the evolving needs of TACT members, he established Texas Agribusiness Insurance in 2010. Partnering with Berkley Agribusiness, it provided a solution for members seeking alternative property & casualty insurance options. The agency specializes in catering to select mid to large-market commercial agribusiness risks.

Committed to providing solution-centered options, a strategic decision was made in 2012. To fully focus on expanding Texas Agribusiness Insurance, he resigned from TACT, leaving the organization in a strong financial position. Under his leadership, Texas Agribusiness Insurance has flourished, expanding its operations to encompass five states with plans for continued growth.
