After graduating from Eastern Washington University in 1981 with a B.A. in Business Administration, John began his career in the insurance industry that same year with Walton-Mostoller Insurance. His father, Roger Mostoller, was the agency principal and a long-time industry veteran; John spent the next 11 years under his Dad's tutelage honing his insurance knowledge and skills. In 1992 Spencer Kinney bought the agency and John joined their team. With Spencer-Kinney, John serviced all types of commercial accounts including farms, wineries, orchards, and contractors with bonding needs. He established a contractors division within the agency. John is a Tri-City native, has a wife and two daughters, plus a golden retriever. John says, “We just call her a golden, as at 4 years old, she still hasn't figured out the ‘retriever’ part!” As a Christian, John believes in giving back to the community. John has been active in Kiwanis (a past club president), and several other activities including the Tri-City Water Follies - aka the ‘boat races’. John is also a past president of our local Independent Insurance Agents of Benton-Franklin Counties.
