About Our Agency

About Our Agency

Burgess Insurance and Financial Services was established in 2018 by managing partner Johnathan Burgess. Burgess was born and raised in Jonesville, SC and attended Union Christian Day School in Union, SC.

Growing up in a small community, he understands that his business must be built on a foundation of trust. He knows the importance of hands-on attention to his clients. This passion for integrity and personal accountability led Burgess to have a mindset of constant dedication to learning his craft. Burgess attended the University of South Carolina Upstate and graduated with a bachelor's degree in Accounting.

Johnathan Burgess

President/ CEO

At the age of 22, while attending the University of South Carolina Upstate, Johnathan began working for a multiple line practice. While there, Johnathan quickly realized the importance of hands-on attention and used this knowledge as the foundation for his own practice. He established his agency, Burgess Insurance & Financial Services.

Johnathan is committed to constant improvement and is currently taking classes to attain his designation of RICP. The American College offers the Retirement Income Certified Professional designation upon successful completion of three courses: retirement income process, strategies, and solutions; sources of retirement income; and managing a retirement income plan. This makes this completion one of the most comprehensive financial designation available.

As a result of influential mentors and continuous educational efforts, Johnathan adopted the commitment to build a team of specialists who can provide better knowledge and service than what most clients are used to, and that principle holds true today. This dedication shows that while there are few guarantees in life, Johnathan and The Burgess Insurance team WILL consistently deliver uncompromised service and a passion that surrounds each client interaction.
