Jim came to work for the family agency in 2002 after a variety of career paths. As one will find, the Bocrie name is synonymous with insurance in Virginia. Jim likes to tell others that he was born into an insurance family since his dad and sister were Nationwide Agents, and his uncle and three cousins were agents for Allstate. His hobbies span from fishing, biking, swimming to having cookouts in his back yard. Jim grew up in the Midlothian area where he resides with his wife who also works in the agency. He has three daughters who are trying to find their own path, but he hopes they eventually find their way to the family business of helping others.
