Meet the Owners

Mark and Robyn Jones are businesspeople, investors and philanthropists. The high school sweethearts, who recently celebrated their 43rd anniversary, grew up just across the border in Lethbridge, Alberta and now split their time between homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and Whitefish. Together they founded Goosehead Insurance (NASDAQ: GSHD) in 2003. Since then, the company has grown to become one of the largest and fastest growing insurance brokers in the country, with more than 1,500 offices, including over 10 in Montana. Mark currently serves as Chairman and CEO and Robyn serves as Vice Chairman.

The Joneses and their children and grandchildren have a love for Montana, its incomparable natural beauty, and its wonderful people. They are delighted it is a place they call home.

On August 30th, 2021, it was announced that the Joneses agreed to invest $101 million to expand and update Montana State University's College of Nursing facilities, faculty and financial aid to help improve access to healthcare for all Montanans particularly in the areas of mental health, challenges with an aging population, maternal and pre-natal care and substance abuse. Mark and Robyn's investment represents the largest donation ever made to a nursing school in the United States. The couple was moved to invest in expanding Montana's healthcare capacity after their friend and building project superintendent, David Haney, lost a valiant fight against cancer.
