Meet Our Team

Paul Bendele
Agency Owner

From a small town in Ohio, I’ve lived in the Fort Collins/ Loveland area for 30 years. We opened Bendele Insurance Agency Inc. in June of 2013 knowing that we will be here for our clients in their hour of need. While my background with insurance is limited, I spent nearly 40 years in the automotive parts and service operations helping clients with their needs.

I love the study of history and dreamed when I was younger of being a history teacher, and now I get the pleasure of teaching my staff. When I’m not working, you can find me hanging out with my grandkids or studying history on my back porch in the warm weather or by the fire when it’s cold. I’m always cracking jokes about my age and my love for old cars, old airplanes, and old trains.

Jesus “Jay” Garcia
Licensed Sales Professional

I’ve had the pleasure of growing up in the beautiful state of Colorado my entire life. I’ve been in the insurance industry for four years now, three of which have been with Allstate. While I just recently joined the Bendele Insurance Agency Inc team, I am excited to have the opportunity to learn and grow with such a great Agency.

I am the proud father of a three-year old daughter, Sophia and soon to be baby boy.  Knowing me means you know I’m a family man and love my wife dearly, almost as much as a good steak. I enjoy fishing in our great outdoors and find the outdoors a wonder to behold.  I currently am not involved with any community projects but am excited to see the difference we can make.

Leah Vos
Financial Professional

Born in Littleton, Colorado, I followed my love for the state and went to Colorado State University. I have over 22 years of experience in the Financial Industry, and have been helping Allstate clients reach their goals since 2001. My favorite part about my job is the satisfaction in being able to help people reach their retirement without worrying about running out of money.

When I’m not at work I’m home with my family and cats. I love my kids and support them in their school’s Robotics Program. I am also a Board Member for Ridgebotics at Fossil Ridge High School. Currently I volunteer at the Fort Collins Cat Rescue and I am excited to see how we can incorporate my love for animals into #AgentsOfChange movement!

I am originally from Southern California, but now call Loveland, Colorado home. Me and my wife, Ashley, just welcomed a new baby boy into the world. His name is Roy and we could not be happier!

I enjoy hiking and am a car enthusiast. I am also looking forward to learning to fly a small airplane!


Emma Bernstein
Licensed Sales Professional

I was born and raised in Southern California, but I have lived in Colorado for about 4 years. I have been working in the insurance industry for a few years. What I enjoy most is providing excellent customer service as well as adept insurance knowledge to the clients!

Outside of work, you can find me at home with my husband Austin, my dog “The Colonel”, and the household “Boss” Delia the cat! My hobbies are cooking, reading or playing tennis!
