Joey Samuelson

Hello Everyone! My name is Joey and I’ve been an Agent with Compass Insurance since 2015.

I started my journey in insurance after college at Millikin University back in 2004 with Federated Mutual Insurance. I was a captive agent for 11 years before transitioning to Compass in 2015. I switched to become an independent agent representing several companies vs. just 1. As an agent, I get to help local businesses, contractors, churches, and non-profits with their commercial insurance needs, group benefits, and succession/estate planning. I also enjoy helping people with their personal insurance (home, auto, life, disability, and long-term care). We believe in Dave Ramsey’s principles on managing money and protecting you properly.

My Family and I

In 2020, I joined the Agency’s ownership team (don’t ask me why) I am kidding. As a co-owner of the agency, I get the opportunity to work with the rest of our leadership team to find ways to make Compass Insurance your agency of choice. I’m passionate about helping others get into the business and assisting them in taking care of our great customers well into the future. I have learned so much in 20 years by getting my LUTCF, CLU, REBC, and CIC designations as I love learning to provide knowledge to make an impact.

I was born and raised in Northwest Indiana while my wonderful wife Karla was raised on a family farm in Central Illinois (Bement, IL). Karla and I have 3 kids: Hunter (15), Kenna (13), and Grace (11). We love to travel, do projects at home, run the kids to the activities they are involved in, our church community, and giving back generously to our community through CEO Council, Sunrise Rotary, and Night in a Car for Home Sweet Home Ministries.
