Headshot of Jeff Pope

Jeff Pope is known around Columbia as a reliable professional and friend, and he strives to constantly show up for his clients when they need him. Jeff was raised in Columbia and attended Rock Bridge High School and later Columbia College, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.

Prior to joining Gallaher Insurance, he was a business owner himself and started Lazer Lanes with his father-in-law, where he helped build the business for six years. From there, he transitioned into insurance to pursue a greater work-life balance so he could spend more time with his family.

Jeff now focuses on helping business owners insure their livelihoods, which comes naturally since he’s been in their shoes. He has his Property and Casualty license and specializes in commercial construction and professional insurance.

In his free time, you can often find Jeff playing hard on the golf course and the basketball court or spending time with friends and family. He’s been married to his wife Amanda for 9 years, and they have two children, Jace and Chloe.
