About Ken Jones Insurance
Ken Jones Insurance Agency can trace its roots back to the 1930’s when it was owned by the Silver Family. The agency was sold to Marie D. Burton in the 1950’s and then Ken Jones in 1963. In 1995, Ken Jones sold KJI to his son, David and his partner Shirley Morris but remained active in the business until 1998. From its inception, the agency has been located in Delta, PA and for the past 70 years has been located on Main Street.
In 2017, BB&K of Pennsylvania, LLC. purchased Ken Jones Insurance Agency, and brought their experience and resources to this Delta mainstay. Today, David Jones and his staff continue to provide the personal, face-to-face approach of dealing with people that has marked its beginnings.
