With childhood dreams of building rockets one day, a Mont Belvieu businessman is launching his way to business success near the Rocket City. Jeremiah Rasco, a long-time caterer in the Southeast, will be launching Brightway, The Rasco Agency insurance office in Baytown Monday.

The 43-year-old entrepreneur who first hoped for a career in Aeronautical Engineering is now shooting for the stars this month when he opens the doors on his I-10 East business next week.

Although Rasco has spent the past four years working in the insurance industry, his customer service expertise all came from his career behind an apron.

Starting as a busboy in the Lousiana restaurant industry at the age of 14, Rasco spent most of the next three decades building an enterprise in the customer service industry. From catering to restaurant management, Rasco has decades of expertise in serving the public which will now be put to use here in the Lone Star State.

“After years of very long hours and weeks without a day off, I made the move to insurance,” Rasco added. “From bussing tables to catering events for hundreds for so many years, knowing what customers need has been our family’s top priority since day one,” Rasco said.

Rasco’s wife, Ashely, works in event planning. His oldest son, Preston, also spent several years in the kitchen with him.

Rasco, 43, and Ashley have three children and are new residents to Chambers County.

Brightway, The Rasco Agency offers customized Home, Flood, Auto, Boat, Condo, Renters, Personal Articles, RV, Motorcycle, Umbrella, Commercial and Life insurance policies from numerous insurance companies. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (CDT) and Saturday/Sunday by appointment. Visit them at their office at 10902 Interstate 10 East Suite F in Baytown, online at or call 281-214-2922.

Brightway’s corporate office staff provides expertise and support in areas including customer service, technology, accounting, marketing, distribution and business analytics. In addition, Brightway handles carrier relations and appointments, as well as support with personnel hiring, licensing, onboarding, training and retention. The company’s signature after-the-sale service empowers Agency Owners, like Jeremiah, to focus on new business sales and provide customers the personalized service they deserve.
