By  0 Comments

Jeff Tokunaga, a partner at Truex Insurance Agency, sat down with HERLIFE Magazine recently to share his dedication to family and community.

HLM: How long have you lived here? What do you love most?
JT: I have lived in Stockton for 55 years. I was born and raised here. After high school I went away for college and to start my career. And I came back; Stockton has always been my home. I like, first, the people of Stockton. Through the years I have met so many great people in every corner of the city. I also am a big fan of the wonderful spring and fall days.

HLM: How is your heart inspired to serve the community?
JT: Growing up playing sports in the Stockton Community Centers, I saw the different parts of our city, some that you could see needed attention. Giving back to all the youth throughout the City of Stockton is where my heart is inspired.

HLM: What sparks joy for you?
JT: My family, my friends and witnessing a person rise above a difficult situation to thrive in this world.

HLM: Top three bucket list goals?
JT: Design and build our retirement home; live in Europe for six months; ski and/or play golf with grandchildren.

HLM: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
JT: My two boys. My wife deserves most of the credit. They are both outstanding, mindful young men.

HLM: Can you describe a key event that had an impact on your life?
JT: At a young age I learned that hard work, dedication and effort always pay off.

HLM: Outside work, how is your time best spent?
JT: On the golf course. I enjoy the competition, the challenges of each shot and the people that I have met through the game of golf.

HLM: Do you have a favorite quote?
JT: Thomas Edison: There is no substitute for hard work.

HLM: What are you currently reading?
JT: Connected Golf by Jayne Storey.

HLM: Favorite food or dessert?
