Kessler Alair Insurance Services has always been a part of Brad Kessler’s life since it was established by his father and uncle and is one of his true passions.
Brad was born and raised in Southern California and graduated from Claremont High School in 1973. An avid athlete, he was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds professional baseball team in the first round of the June 1973 draft. He was also recruited to play college football by most major universities in the U.S.A. including Notre Dame, Stanford, UCLA, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Washington.
When he wanted to marry, Lori Drury, he decided that baseball was not compatible to family life, left baseball and has devoted his life to his real passion, helping all families live well. Since that time the husband and father to six adult children and thirteen grandchildren (and counting) has enjoyed working in the insurance industry and being surrounded by a team dedicated to providing clients a measure of peace, should they find themselves in a challenging situation.
Brad served for 4 years on the Presidents Council for Safeco Insurance Company and is a six-year recipient of Safeco’s “Award of Excellence”.
In addition to his efforts at the Upland insurance agency, he enjoys serving the Inland Empire community in many capacities. He has served his church in regular capacity since 1976, particularly enjoying working with youth. He has also spent many years coaching baseball in Little League, Pony League and as assistant varsity coach at Claremont High School.
Above all else, he loves the opportunity to spend time with his family and the opportunity to help others enjoy their families as well.
