Chad Juarez

Main Agent

I was born in Miles City, Montana, but grew up in Wyoming with my mother and two siblings. Being the oldest, I learned from an early age how to care for others and be resourceful. My mom worked very hard to take care of us and no matter what she made sure I always lived by one rule: “Manners make you nice to know.” To this day that saying always makes me smile and my kids now recite it. I met my lovely wife, Soraya, in high school and we have three wonderful kids; Aidan, Ashlynn, and Aaric.

We relocated to Missouri in September of 2016 to be closer to family that lives in St Joseph and while I was initially against the move, my wife knew what was best and it’s amazing the opportunities God has opened for us here. When not at work I enjoy volunteering at church and with our various community partners, as well as coaching and participating in my kids’ extracurricular activities. I’m super competitive and love all things requiring strategic thinking and quick wits. Board game nights at our house can get quite intense!

I’ve always believed attitude is a choice and I’d like to think of myself as the most anti-negative person you could ever meet. My passion in life is to make the lives of those around me better and to radically impact my community in a positive way. I live this out through the core values of Family, Attitude, Interconnection, Trust, and Helpful. These values, combined with an innate desire to honor God with everything I do allow me to be a true Agent of Change.

Soraya Juarez

Manager

I was born and raised in Wyoming and have one sister. I met Chad when I was a junior in high school and knew one day, I’d marry him! Much like him, I enjoy watching our kids compete in all their various activities. I love crafts, love (love, love) Pinterest, baking, and enjoy running. Much like Chad, I enjoy volunteering at church and working alongside our Community Connection partners. Each day I strive to live out the calling God placed on my heart to serve others: to be kind, generous, and encouraging to those around me.

We relocated to Missouri in 2016 to be closer to family. At the time, we weren’t sure of God’s plans for us, but truly felt He was calling us to something bigger than we could ever dream. God began to reveal His plans over the course of two years and reminded us of what we could accomplish and how we could impact our community if we obeyed and left corporate America. We began stepping out in faith, believing what God was speaking to us which ultimately lead to Juarez Insurance Agency being opened.

We truly believe in building relationships and look forward to working alongside you to find the right fit for your insurance needs.

Tonya Jensen

I was born in a small town near Wichita, Kansas and raised in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. My mom and dad are both very hard workers and engrained this in me. I remember from a very young age having a strong intuition and desire to make the world a better place by helping others. As an adult my family and I lived in Shawnee, KS for about 10 years where I stayed home with my 5 amazing kiddos: Samantha, Noelle, Gabe, Lucy and Lilly. We made a couple stops in between and, in the fall of 2019, landed back in my hometown of Lee’s Summit. I truly love this town and supporting the small businesses within it.

I spent a lot of years really struggling with depression. Through these struggles I have come out much stronger with a deep love and passion for supporting mothers. My family and I love to go on walks, play board games, go on nature hikes and have Friday movie nights! I also truly love and value my alone time and enjoy reading, doing yoga, going for walks, water coloring, embroidering and working on my college classes. Taking good care of my mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health are my top priorities because it empowers me to take better care of my children and be present with them.

I have worked in insurance off and on over the years, most recently with a local agency as their Home & Auto Account Manager.  As I was praying to know which direction God wanted me to go with my career, I came across the Juarez Agency and immediately was impressed with their compassion and drive to serve God and their community. I love helping people learn the importance of being properly insured and guiding them in making the best choices for their family. I also love being able to support people when they need it.  I truly believe that if we are prepared and feel supported, we won’t be afraid.

I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ~Mother Theresa
