About the Company

J.D. Chapman Agency

Three generations of Chapmans: brothers Bruce and Eric, father John, and Eric's son, Trevor.

In the early days of the Great Depression, Henry Kemp started a small insurance agency on Main Street in Macedon.

In 1958 Mr. Kemp decided to retire and sold the agency to John D. Chapman, a newcomer to Macedon. At that time, the agency staff consisted of John and Doris Chapman and was located in a small room of their home at 39 Victor Road, in Macedon.

In 1973 the small agency had grown to a staff of four and was incorporated as the J.D. Chapman Agency, Inc. at its location at 96 Main Street, Macedon. Over the next 15 years, there were several acquisitions and the agency grew to a staff of nine people. In 1987, the agency moved to a newly constructed building at 66 Main Street, Macedon where they are now located.

In April 2005, the Zonneville Agency of Canandaigua was acquired by the Chapman Agency. A branch office of J.D. Chapman Agency, Inc. was established at 498 N. Main St. Canandaigua and staffed with six people.

Today the agency is run by John and Doris’ sons, Eric and Bruce Chapman, and Eric’s son, Trevor J. Chapman, the third generation, joining the Agency in 2001. Over 4,000 individuals and families and 750 Business Concerns and Farms throughout Western NY and the Finger Lakes area are serviced by J.D. Chapman Agency, Inc.
