Jon Backstrom

Principal Agent

I have 14 years experience in the Insurance Industry. On June 1, 2019, I opened Backstrom Insurance Group as an Independent Agency with the Premise that Clients Always Come First! We focus on Personal Lines of Home, Auto, Life and Boat Insurance. Also we specialize in Business Insurance for the Local Business Owner.

I am a Native of Minnesota but moved to the South Bend Mishawaka Area in 1992. I now call South Bend Home where I live with His wife Debbie. My 3 Adult Children are overachievers including my daughter who recently received her Commercial Pilots License!

Prior to Insurance I managed bowling centers in South Bend and Elkhart!

Fun Facts: My College Degree is in Bowling Lanes Management, I am a BIG fan of all things Minnesota Sports, including the Vikings, Twins, Wild and Gophers! When I’m not working, I am probably out fishing somewhere.

Jami Potter

Executive Assistant

My name is Jami. I have been married to my husband Matt for 6 years. I have 3 amazing children. Lizzi is 12, Joas is 8 and Taylor is 2.

I spent my first 12 years out of high school working in the Carpenter’s Union local 413. Once my oldest went to school, I decided it was time for a career change so I could be the kind of mom I wanted to be. I have been in the insurance industry for 6 years now and have never looked back. I absolutely love what I do.

I am very active in volunteering at my kid’s schools. I do anything from Art Smart to field trips to planning their after-school functions. This past year, I coached Girls on The Run (although COVID shut us down). I also enjoy volunteering for Habitat for Humanity.

In my spare time, I enjoy working on my house, playing board games and anything outdoors.
