In 1928, Alvin J. Jolly founded the Jolly Insurance Agency in Marietta, Ohio after graduating from Marietta College. Daniel A.T. O’Neill and family purchased the business in 1951 after Mr. Jolly’s death. The agency was then located in The First National Bank Building where it remained until the year 1974. C. William O’Neill assumed control over the O’Neill Insurance Agency in 1959 until he became the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and his life in politics required him to fully relocate to Columbus, Ohio and sell the family agency.
Darrel L. Schultheis of Newport, Ohio purchased the agency from Bill in September of 1963, becoming Schultheis Insurance. Darrel spent his early years in service of the U.S. Navy aboard the U.S.S. Beaver as a master welder. He eventually settled in Washington County and was the owner-operator of a large fruit farm with his wife Helen Warren Schultheis until the O’Neill’s encouraged him to purchase the agency and become a businessman.
In 1989, after being located at One Courthouse Lane for 15 years, Schultheis Insurance relocated for the final time to our current location at 418 Third Street. We are a second generation, family owned and operated agency with a third generation of Schultheis working and learning alongside her father.
Schultheis Insurance has been committed to serving the Mid-Ohio Valley community for over 90 years and will continue to do so with loyalty and honesty.
