About The Kennedy Agency

Kennedy Family

Valinda Kennnedy

Agency Owner

After teaching Math at the secondary level for 20 years, Valinda and her husband took a leap of faith and began their own insurance agency back in 2014. Valinda branched out and started The Kennedy Agency on her own in 2020.

Valinda says that “Our goal is to help small business owners protect their most valuable investments and personal clients to protect their most valuable assets. Our team is committed to finding you the best coverage for YOUR individual needs!”

When Valinda isn’t in the office, she enjoys painting, golf, camping, hunting, and making memories with her family. She has been married to her husband, Khris, since 1995 and they have 4 grown children together.

Jeremy and wife Nikki

Jeremy Rasmussen

Commercial Line Specialist

Jeremy is a sixth generation insurance agent who is passionate about keeping your small business protected and helping it grow! He was born and raised on a farm in northeast Nebraska (GO BIG RED), and initially studied broadcasting at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and even hosted several radio shows before following in so many of his forefather’s (and mother’s) footsteps into the farm insurance world. In 2013, He moved to Texas where he met his wife, Nikki, and settled into a career in the sports industry. Following the COVID-19 Pandemic and the challenges it presented to everyone in sports, he made the difficult yet exciting decision to go back to the “family business” with his new family here at The Kennedy Agency!

When Jeremy isn’t researching ways to better protect your life’s work, he enjoys following the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Stars, SMU Mustangs, Nebraska Cornhuskers and just about every type of motorsport there is. He is also an aspiring BBQ Pit-Master and would put his pork ribs up against anybody in the business. His wife joins him in these ventures when she isn’t busy changing the world one taco at a time, but when she is busy, he always has his faithful companions, Sadie the Cat and Jack the Dog, by his side on the couch!
