About Our Agency

Debra Jackson President & CEO

The Trident Agency is a family owned and operated Independent Insurance Agency specializing in superior products coupled with superior customer service. We have been serving our community with insurance services since 1969, and offer a complete line of insurance products including auto, RV, home, earthquake, life, health, and business insurance.

The Trident Insurance Agency was founded by my father Melvyn Budnick in 1969.  After graduating from University of Southern California and finishing his term in the US Navy, he set out to create a stable family business that would ensure financial security for his 3 children.  I am the oldest of my siblings and took the opportunity to work with my father in 1985. This was the best decision I ever made because it not only allowed me to build a professional foundation for myself and become an expert in the insurance industry, but I was able to share memorable moments with my father that I will cherish forever.

At some time over our 50-year history, both of my two daughters, my brother and my sister have all worked for the agency and my sister Lori still does.  It truly has been and is still a family business.

From The Trident Agency’s inception until today, we strive to earn and retain our client’s business as their  “Trusted Advisor”.  We always advise our clients as we would our own family.  Our goal is to provide professional suggestions to ensure you are protected against life’s unexpected events.

Community Involvement

We donate to Red, White and Blue, which is a veterans group that helps veterans assimilate into life in after military service.  We also donate to the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides aid to veterans who were injured in the line of duty.  Our principal has two sons who served in foreign wars and all of our agents and staff are proud to support our armed forces.
