Meet The Life and Health Insurance Expert: David Fenderson and Company
Fenderson Insurance was a family owned General Insurance Agency that began in 1836. The Lee and Fenderson families owned the company for over 150 years. After a 25 year career owning the company, Dave Fenderson sold the agency to the Cross Family in the early 1990s.

He worked as a Territory Manager for a national health insurance company for 3 years before re-forming Fenderson Insurance. This time the agency would specialize in Health, Life, Medicare, Retirement and other supporting forms of insurance.
