Bessey Insurance New Location

Owners Shelley Jamison and Mark Cote have announced the relocation of Bessey Insurance Agency from their Buckfield location to the former Northeast Insurance building on Snell Hill Road in Turner.

Bessey Insurance began in 1939. Shelley is the third generation owner of the agency. It was founded by Shelley’s grandparents, Gerald & Marion Bessey. They ran the business until 1978 when Shelley's mother, Norma Bessey Colby took over. In 1995, Shelley purchased it and continues to operate it today.

 “Insurance has been a way of life for my family for as long as I can remember.” Shelley explained.  “ We have served our community for almost 75 years and look forward to continuing to do it from our new location. Small town Maine is what we do best.”

Shelly’s partner, Mark Cote, has over 20 years in the insurance industry and owns Advantage Insurance Services in Rumford as well as the Weber Insurance agencies in Farmington and Kingfield.

 “I am glad to bring an insurance agency back to Turner.” Cote added. “Local service is very important in insurance matters. People want their agent to be accessible when they need them and we’re eager to be there to help.”

Bessey Insurance offers all types of insurance from the highest quality insurance companies.  They can be reached at 225-2334 or 336-2333. Office hours are 8:30 to 4:30 Monday through Friday. Visit
