Jay Hickman

Commercial Insurance Consultant

Jay was born in Little Rock, AR and attended the University of Arkansas where he met his wife, Kristen.  They have two incredible kids, Bazze 10 and Liz 7.  When they are not attending basketball, soccer, football, tumble practice and games, they LOVE to get outside and float the Buffalo River.  They currently live in Harrison, AR on a small farm.

Right out of college, Jay had the incredible opportunity to jump right into the business world and started the Ernie Biggs Dueling Piano Bars.  This was in 2003 and since then he has partnered in multiple other ventures and real estate groups.

Since joining Connell in 2011, Jay has naturally focused on multi-unit restaurant owners, as well as waste haulers, large commercial property owners and large fleet auto clients.   In 2013, he helped start the Missouri Independent Waste Haulers Association which later became the Midwest Independent Waste Haulers Association.

Jay thrives on personal relationships and helping clients uncover risks, wastes and threats that would be detrimental to them personally and in their business.  “It is truly a pleasure to help and assist my clients on a daily basis to become better protected so we can all sleep better at night. I truly look forward to working with you in the near future!”

At the end of the day, it’s all about relationships.
