Our Team


Burnette & Associates was established in 1980 by Jeff’s father,
Allen Burnette. Jeff followed in his dad’s footsteps and joined the agency
in 1989. During Jeff’s career he has served on many insurance company
advisory boards and task forces. Jeff has also been awarded the Erie Insurance

Jeff brings to the agency the core belief that each client is an individual, and the
need to provide extraordinary service and individual coverages to meet
his clients’ needs at the best possible price. Jeff enjoys spending time with his family
and outdoor activities, especially playing golf, and of course cheering on the Vols.

Jeff is very active in his church, serving on Boards and also as a Deacon.

whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
