Nick Jensen

Account Representative

Nick is originally from Iowa, and grew up in a small town in the southwestern part of the state. After high school, despite numerous sabotage attempts by his mother, he enlisted in the United States Navy. He was attached to an F-14 squadron stationed in Virginia Beach, VA. After two deployments overseas, one sailing around the world, he enrolled in the Exercise Science program at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, IA where he met his wife, and got married in 2005.

His wife is from Faribault, MN, so when she said, “we are moving to Minnesota!” Nick said, “Oh of course, yes dear!” They have two wonderful children Larina and Nash. Larina is very creative, loves to draw, and wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. Nash has a wonderful heart, always the first to give out hugs, and unsupervised can destroy a room in less than 30 seconds. They are such a blessing, and they are excited to experience the coming years through their eyes.

As a Navy veteran Nick values selfless service and applies that concept to help his customers. He always tries to put himself in other people’s shoes, take the time to ask questions, listen to learn, and earn your trust. His mission as a licensed insurance consultant is to ensure his customers, their family, and future is financially protected.

Call Nick for all your State Farm life insurance needs!

Excellent source for Car Insurance!

Rebecca Hanson State Farm Agent Team Member

Rebecca Hanson

Business Insurance Representative

Rebecca is originally from LA where she lived until finishing college at Centenary College of Louisiana. During College she met her husband, Justin – originally from Detroit Lakes, MN who was enlisted in the United States Airforce and stationed in LA. Although, Rebecca never planned on leaving the warmth of the south; it didn’t take much convincing after visiting Justin’s daughter, Arya, and family to solidify the BIG MOVE.

After months of planning, packing, and a LONG drive they moved to Rosemount, MN where they stayed for a few years before buying a house in Savage, MN just in time to welcome their son Spencer into the family. Arya is an amazing big sister and takes the role very seriously. She’s extremely outgoing and smart. She recently joined the Gateway program! Spencer is the sweetest little guy – likely from all the marshmallows that he will find and get no matter where they are hidden. He’s independent, determined, and a professional climber. Spencer keeps everyone on their toes when he’s around. They really know how to keep life interesting and fun!

As a mom Rebecca recognizes that life is hectic and constantly changing! It’s importance to make sure your family is protected during those unpredictable moments. She’s always willing to take the time to listen and learn about your specific needs to provide great service to our customers. Rebecca’s mission as a licensed insurance consultant is to ensure your family’s needs and future are covered!

Rebecca is focused on helping you with all of your Business Insurance needs!

Michael Utell State Farm Agent Team Member

Michael Utell

Account Representative

Michael is originally from Long Island, New York. While in high school, he was active in the music department by playing the saxophone in every ensemble offered during his time there and was active in the theater department by either acting on stage or performing in the pit orchestra. When he wasn’t in school, he trained with the American Red Cross to be a lifeguard and water safety instructor. After graduation, he moved to Fairfax, Virginia to attend George Mason University. He earned a Bachelor of Music Education and a Master of Music Performance. He was also an active member of his fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi and its philanthropy, The Ability Experience (formerly known as Push America). His favorite memory as a part of that was participating in the Inaugural Build America Team in which about 25 of his fraternity brothers from around the country traveled to six different camps that served kids with special needs. They built functional amenities for each camp including wheelchair ramps, nature trails, sensory gardens and climbing towers. During this time, he met his wife, Vanessa and she moved to Virginia and were married in the year of 2006.

Once Michael graduated from college, he became an elementary band teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools. While working there, him and his wife had 2 daughters. There is Grace, who is currently 12 and enjoys art, baking, making messes and school, then there is Lily, who is currently 10 and enjoys gymnastics, reading, playing music and being silly. In 2015, his wife who is originally from Bloomington, Minnesota was missing home and her parents, and Michael wanted a change in scenery. So, they moved to a single-family home in Apple Valley, Minnesota to be closer to family and allow Michael’s wife to successfully work as a music teacher in Eagan. Michael eventually took a job as a band teacher in Cottage Grove, Inver Grove Heights and Woodbury but decided in 2022 after teaching for a total of 18 years, he was ready for a change. Starting in 2023, Michael became the newest team member for Pete Peterson and State Farm and he could not be more excited and grateful for this opportunity.

Michael is a big foodie. He loves to bake, cook, eat, grill and try new recipes and restaurants. He is still very active musically with his church, Grace Lutheran Church in Apple Valley. You can see him giving back as worship music leader at their Wednesday evening services and participating in their choir and handbell ensemble. He is a proud Girl Scout Dad since his daughters are currently both Girl Scouts and his wife is their Girl Scout Leader to their troops. When he is not working or cooking the meals while spending time with his family, he is either cleaning the house, playing with the dogs they actively take care of through the app, Rover, and making sure his daughters are practicing either piano, their band instruments (flute and tuba) or the songs they sing with their respective choirs. At the end of the day, you’ll more than likely see Michael with a good book or watching a movie or something on YouTube.

Michael loves to help and interact with people. He wants to educate his customers on the long-term benefits of what his team can offer, while figuring out what are the needs and wants that fit you and your family to help you move forward with your lives securely and successfully. Michael cares about what is happening in your world and will provide you with the resources and relationship as a newly licensed agent that will help protect what is most important to you. Remember, a goal without a plan is just a wish. Let me help you make that plan so you can reach your goals.

Set up an appointment with Michael today to discuss all of your Life, Health, Home and Auto Insurance needs with State Farm.
