ABOUT ALBERIGI INSURANCE AGENCY
Alberigi Insurance Agency was founded in November of 1968 by Ray Alberigi and has since been a staple in the Jessup community. The business began when Ray, a U.S. Marine Officer, and Aetna C&S insurance adjuster, was thinking about entering politics. While working for Aetna, he was told that "Politics won't last forever, but insurance is something that people will always need." With the advice he was given, he chose to purchase an existing Aetna Agency and Alberigi Insurance Agency was born. The first few years he ran the business by himself at an in-home office. It wouldn't be until the early 1970's that he brought on another employee. Eventually, as the Agency grew, Alberigi Insurance moved to Church Street in Jessup.
Ray became a Lackawanna County Commissioner, allowing him once again to make an impact on the people of Lackawanna County. With Ray's new commitment he called upon his oldest daughter, Tracy, to keep the "family business going". In September of 1986, Tracy Alberigi joined the agency to run the day to day operations. Upon Ray's retirement from County Government in 2000, and his desire to spend time with his wife and family, the agency was turned over to Tracy.
In 2013 the agency welcomed a third-generation, Ray's grandson, J.R. Refice, who followed in his grandfather's footsteps at Penn State as both a student and athlete. J.R. is committed to carrying on the high-quality service that Alberigi Insurance Agency has provided for over fifty years. Along with helping to grow the agency, J.R. is also committed to giving back to the community. He is the Vice President of the St. Ubaldo Society, President of the Cougar Kickoff Club and a volunteer coach for the Valley View Cougars Football Team, among being part of other organizations.
Over 50 years after first opening its doors, Alberigi Insurance Agency is still a staple in Jessup and the surrounding communities. J.R. and Tracy work side by side to serve the insurance needs of hundreds of area residents. They strive to create a comfortable and easy process for those who may feel intimidated by the insurance process. It's the company's main objective to create a small-town feel where every client is considered family.
“I was getting married during the spring and was very concerned about my outdoor wedding, what would I do if it rained and I couldn't have things that I paid for? I discovered the option of wedding insurance through Travelers Insurance and called Tracy for more information. Although my wedding day was perfect, it helped to ease my mind throughout the planning knowing that I was covered.”

“I work with a local Non-Profit in NEPA, The Andrew Mazza Foundation, and knew that we needed some type of insurance, but was not sure what. I was referred to J.R. We got together and he explained everything about the policy and options so well. The next week we were completely insurance and we are so grateful to have Alberigi Insurance in our corner. Anytime we need anything they are just a phone call away and it is always handled in a timely manor! Thanks for the great work! ”

“I never realized how much money I was spending on my auto policy until I had it quoted by Alberigi Insurance. I have not looked at my policy in years because I didn't think it would make much of a difference. I met with J.R. and Tracy and a few days later learned that I could save over $1,400 annually AND that I would actually have a better policy than I was paying for previously. The next day I was an Alberigi Insurance Agency customer for life!”
