Jason Starkman '03

Jason Starkman has spent his entire professional career bettering the lives of those around him. As the owner of a State Farm Agency in Newport Beach for the past 9 years, Jason and his team work hard each day to make sure their clients, friends and family are all properly protected from everyday risk. Prior to opening his insurance agency, Jason owned an entertainment and hospitality company, organizing events and travel for young adults from all over California.  Jason graduated from UC Irvine in 2003 with a degree in Sociology. While at UCI, he was involved in over a dozen campus organizations and attributes a lot of his post collegiate success, to the experiences and relationships he created at that time.

Jason volunteers and has sat on the board of several non-profits in Orange County and has helped coach groups of veterans on interviewing and obtaining a job, once they have left the military. Jason strongly believes in the power of connecting people to help them better their lives and the philosophy of “Giver’s Gain.”  In his free time, Jason enjoys wakeboarding, playing hockey and going to concerts with his wife, Briana, a fellow Anteater.
