Jesmond

Integrity and Honesty. These two words mean so much to me, both personally and professionally. When my family came to Canada from the small island of Malta, my parents built a life here in Windsor on a foundation of integrity and honesty. As a proud father of two crazy little toddlers, I try to live my life as an example for them. As they quickly – too quickly! – grow into preschoolers, I try to show them every day that even the smallest gestures of integrity and honesty have a positive impact on the people around us. I think that’s why I’ve loved working in insurance for over 20 years: it’s rewarding to help others. And, the way I see it, I get to do just that every day.

It’s not an exaggeration to say that my favourite hobby is volunteering with the Knights of Columbus to make a difference in my community. Getting together with a group of people who have a common goal is actually a lot of fun, and when that collaboration brings joy to others who are in need, it makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Of course, I do enjoy a few guilty pleasures other than work. When I’m not playing at the park with my kids, you might find me with a cup of strong black coffee watching The Hunt for Red October, which I can practically quote line by line. And if you were to ask what my favourite meal is, I would have to say anything that I don’t have to cook! Although, traditional home-made Maltese pastizzi do have a special place in my heart.

Let’s work together to build your perfect plan.

Scott

Born and raised Windsorite his entire life, graduating College from St. Clair College and working locally and professionally in Sports, Advertising and Marketing for over the last decade. Recently married, but no small children yet; his wife is enough of a busy body to keep up busy with activities, excursions and trying every independently owned restaurant within Windsor – Essex.

Working in Insurance and Estate Planning has been in his family his entire life, as well as providing a strong foundation in working within the Church and City. Between working on City of Windsor committees, and volunteering, he certainly tries to keep himself busy as much as I can.

Outside of work, there may be no larger sports fan than himself, between following the four major sports, as well as boxing and maintaining his fitness lifestyle; Sports and Movies occupy what time he spends outside of the office.

He looks forward to building a perfect plan for yourself and your family.

 

Andrew

Has been in the life insurance business for well over 25 years, helping families in Windsor and Essex County meet and exceed their financial expectations and goals.

Even though it seems like a lifetime, the best part of every day has always been meeting people – new faces as well as old friends, and it seems like it is more virtual these days instead of in person.

Every day is a new adventure, and it is satisfying to be able to align himself with your particular long-term plans in life.

In addition to being a long-time member of the Knights of Columbus, his time away from the office is spent with my wife and best friend of over 36 years, Jo-Anne, and our 2 Lab Retrievers – Abby and Sasha. They are both volunteers with Golden Rescue, a non-profit organization that helps find neglected, surrendered, and abandoned Golden Retrievers their forever homes.

He looks forward to meeting with you and create a plan that will take care of your Life, Long Term Care, Disability, Critical Illness insurance needs.

He would like to get together soon and discuss what he can do for you. He here to answer your questions.

By partnering with Tabone Insurance Brokers, we have formed a team that can help cover both your short- and long-term insurance needs.

We are excited. How about you?
