About Janecka Insurance Agency

For two generations beginning in 1976, Janecka Insurance Agency (JIA) has a proud history of providing insurance to Victoria, Texas. Headed by the brother and sister team of Russell and Jill (Friedel) since 1986, the duo have increased their agency and staff in response to a growing need for insurance specific to rural needs. Victoria is largely rural, leading Jill to focus on a specialization of rural property insurance, while Russell focuses on small, independent artisans, and contractors. Together, though, it’s our main goal to help small businesses who are trying to make their dreams come true. We love coming in every day to do that! Everyone here at JIA lives in Victoria, and our family members are all lifelong residents. We understand what you need, and that’s why we represent companies uniquely designed to offer products that serve the insurance needs of rural/country residents. We also represent several competitive markets for homeowners insurance and auto insurance in town as well. Because we were all born and raised here, we’ve grown with the town, evolving and adapting our technology to meet our clients’ needs. All of us at JIA pride ourselves on providing responsive, caring service; offering personalized advice to help you feel comfortable with your insurance purchase. One or our major objectives is to meet your needs where and how you are most comfortable—whether that’s through face-to-face personal service, or through electronic communication. We’re uniquely suited to understand and meet the needs of millennials, as we use email, the internet, and even texting in our daily lives! Although we adopted, and keep fully up to date, technology nearly from the start of our agency, we know that many of our clients and future clients still prefer personal connections such as in-person and phone communication. That will never go away here at JIA! We are so grateful for the years of support and partnership from our Crossroads community, and will always be committed to working daily to earn your loyalty. That’s our promise to you. Our commitment is to the legacy of service and neighborly care left to us by our father, Maynard Janecka, who founded JIA in 1976. We maintain our agency value through attention to detail and creating personal relationships with our neighbors—our clients. We offer a professional and meaningful service to you, born from a sense of family identity in our business. This drives us to be responsible to others, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but it’s who we are. Our niche markets and specializations are rural farms, ranches, and accompanying equipment; barndominiums; and personal, auto, and homeowners insurance. All of us continue career training in these specializations, so that we can be sure to have all the know-how to help you, and make sure you have the proper coverage for your needs. Weather is a major determining factor in south Texas, presenting major volatility; that’s one of the reasons we regularly drop by our client's homes or farms to personally inspect and help identify concerns, as well as ensure their coverage is adequate and proper for them. It’s all part of JIA’s commitment to you!

    We have had home owners insurance with Janecka Insurance for 30 plus years. The last 5 or so years we had our vehicles added to the policy and bundled for real savings. The personnel at Janecka Insurance have always been courteous and professional with any questions about our policies over the years. It's a pleasure doing business with such an awesome company.
