The Walton Agency was established
in Jackson, Michigan by Lee Walton in 1951 as an
insurance agency focused on covering their
neighbor’s homes and cars. In the early days
Mr. Walton was assisted by Helen Maltby in the
office and Roselyn Cheney handling claims. Over
the years the agency flourished, and by the
early 1970s, had grown to a dozen employees. It
was at this time that Lee’s son Ric, after
graduating from Western Michigan University and
working as an insurance underwriter for a
national carrier, returned to his father’s
business on Thompson Street and began working
with Jackson County businesses.
Walton Agency’s team of insurance professionals now
number nearly 50. Having outgrown the Thompson
Street offices in 1997, we moved to our current
Spring Arbor Road location and look forward to
continued growth. Our insurance services have also
grown to cover all aspects of personal and
commercial insurance services, including life,
health and employee benefit programs.
From the beginning we have been proud to be a part
of the Jackson community and recognize the
importance of giving back to those we serve. You
will find our employees on local boards and charity
foundations, as well as volunteering for events
throughout the area. Walton Agency’s annual
Christmas open-house for children has become a “must
see” community event.
commitment to Jackson is strong and we look forward
to many more years serving the next generation of
our friends and neighbors.
Walton Agency…protecting your tomorrows.
