Ortega Family Insurance – Chicago, IL | Kid of the Week

Jesse Ortega goes out of his way to bring out the good in his community It's not in his job description, it's just who he is

Jesse Ortega is one of over four-hundred Chicagoland agents who believe tomorrow is a chance to do even more Becoming an Allstate agent for me was kind of easy, Igrew up with my dad, watching him be an agent He started when Allstate locations were in a Sear's store, they were called booths He would stand in the store and essentially, sell insurance that way I grew up watching him and so it's something that called me

I looked up to him and wanted to be like him Working with the community, as a business owner, and having resources to help schools and organizations that are all about making our community better At the moment, we're focused on Carl Von Linne Elementary School They have a culinary program for kids That's supported through friends of Carl Von Linne, so we raise some money for them to allow them to continue those types of programs which expose kids to different types of cuisines from all over the world

It's important because that's when kids are most shape-able, when they're young If you can teach them to be leaders, to stick up for good and empower them at a young age, that's a key to a great, long, successful life Helping youth in my community is fulfilling to me because I get to see what I was doing when I was a youth I had few programs that I could participate in and now, to be able to help so that there are more programs in my community, is very rewarding
