So you are looking for some insurance?
First, congratulations. you’re in the right place.
Having been around since 1955, the Giangola family and insurance has spanned across three generations together. You might be saying, “That’s great, but what can you do for me?”
You are here because you don’t want to lose everything you have worked for because of an unpredictable or unexpected emergency or event.
You might also have trouble understanding the best way to protect your life’s work and need someone to help assist you with such an important decision.
Not only do you require all those things, but you are also here because you want that decision constantly monitored to know that your protection is still the most effective and efficient solution available.
If or when it’s not, you will be the first to know.
If that isn’t good enough, you can trust, whatever your problem is, we have the knowledge and experience to solve it simply and effectively. Remember we have been doing this since 1955.
Also, at some point you might get nervous that there is a better option out there for you and go looking for greener grass somewhere.
This is the best part...
Not only are we a family owned insurance agency, we are also an independent, family owned insurance agency.
That means we don’t take orders from one insurance company. We work for YOU and can present you many options from any Ohio insurance company that is worth your time.
We can help you protect your home, health, car, life or your future. All you have to do is ask.
Giangola Insurance was founded on April 1, 1955 by Don Giangola Sr.
What started as a one man operation almost 60 years ago has grown into a family business that features three active generations today.
From a one room office space to transformed gas station, where the business is located today, Don wanted to start a business to help other people protect the stuff they worked hard their whole life to get.
Has been standing at the front of the agency since her late husband, Don Giangola, Sr. founded the company almost 60 years ago.
In addition to being a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Isabel has been answering the phones, managing the books and doing the little things to keep the family (and agency) on track over the years.
Chances are if you've called into 'the office" as we all call it, you've been greated by her at some point.
Don joined the agency in 1974 and currently heads the Property Casualty Department. Don has been servicing the Auto, Home and Business insurance needs for our clients for more than 35 years. Don is the most senior Agency Principal at the company and was the first to usher in the second generation that has helped grow the business into what it is today.
Gerry joined the agency in 1977 after graduating from The Ohio State University with a bachelor’s degree in insurance. Gerry went on to obtain his Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designations from the American College. Gerry has been providing clients with astute Life, Financial Services*, Retirement*, Estate and Business Planning for more than 30 years.
Gerry has also found time to donate his efforts to the local branch of Kiwanis, where he currently serves as the Lieutenant Governor. He is also a past officer of the Cleveland chapter of Financial Professionals and Past President of the Local Insurance Financial Advisors.

Joe got some fancy letters to put after his name to prove his abilities, the Certified Employee Benefit Specialist (CEBS) designation in 1993 from The Wharton School of Business at The University of Pennsylvania and The International foundation of Employee Benefit Plans.
Outside of that, Joe has gone on to serve on several boards of local and national organizations. He currently serves as Chairman of the Ashtabula County Medical Center Board of Trustees and has served as Past President for the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors of Ohio (NAIFA).
Joe has also donated time to the economic stability of our agency’s hometown serving as the Past Chamber Chairman for the Ashtabula Area Chamber of Commerce.
When Joe isn’t doing any of those very grown up things. He is either spending time with his wife, two kids and/or three grandchildren. He also is known for his Call of Duty skills in the over 40 gaming crowd.
Is the newest Giangola to walk through the doors of the family business. Joey is the proud father of two children, Joey III (we call him J.R) and Ella. He is also married to his college sweetheart, Vanessa.
Joey graduated in 2006 from Walsh University with a degree in corporate communications. He was also named one of "12 Best Young Agents in 2013" by Property Casualty 360.
He is also the agency’s primary content creator and all around web guy. When Joey isn’t talking about insurance on the internet, or helping clients he’s probably spending time with his family. In other rare spare moments he could be found obsessing over one of the local Cleveland sports teams, struggling to stay awake late enough to play video games or trying to remember how to play the bass guitar.
