Senior Vice President

Jerry Orpen

Jerry has over 30 years of experience in the insurance industry and specializes in Educational Institutions and Public Entities.  Previous to joining Crum-Halsted, he was an instructor at The Insurance School of Chicago.  Jerry has a BA in Public Law from Northern Illinois University and is a certified Associate in Risk Management (ARM).  If he could pass along one piece of advice that he was ever given Jerry says that he’d tell everyone that Luck = Preparation + Opportunity.  Jerry is a diehard Nebraska Cornhusker fan and loves attending football games in Lincoln whenever he can.  He also loves travelling and one of the things he’s yet to check off his list is visiting the Pyramids & the Sphinx in Egypt.  In his spare time Jerry enjoys reading and just recently finished Cure for the Common Life by Max Lucado.
