A Legacy of Service Excellence

John R. Prewitt, Jr. proudly established J.R. Prewitt & Associates on November 15, 1974. Jack,as he was called by all, was best known in the insurance world as a well-respected man of integrity, an icon of the industry. What began as a one-man business grew into one of the largest family-owned agencies in the southeast, now known as The Prewitt Group. To Jack, his clients were family, and his sole mission was to take care of them.
Recently, The Prewitt Group proudly announced that two of Jack’s grandsons have joined the agency as Risk Consultants. This brings additional Prewitt family members to the firm, adding to the ongoing legacy of Jack Prewitt and his founding of our third-generation family company.
